This isn't only an issue with design patents. The technical training recognized by the PTO does not match the kinds of utility patents being sought, either. See for my paper on topic.

My co-authors and I approached the PTO with the data out of the paper. We were effectively told to go pound sand. I doubt they would be any more open to the design patent problem.

Thanks for your series of posts on design patents. They have been excellent.
