Mental Model question restated

Maybe my earlier question didn't make much sense, so let me restate my
question. Here you can see a mental model of movie goers:

http://www.rosenfeldmedia.com/books/mental-models/blog/moviegoer_alignment_diagram/index.php

They call this an alignment diagram. Once they modeled the users thoughts
about movie going up top, they then aligned the proposed functionality of
the system to those models.

So the question(s) are:

1. Do any of you actually do this? If so, how helpful was it?
2.

Domain Driven Design conflicts with Coopers Interaction Design...

Hi,

I am reading "About Faces 3" and I like most of the ideas
that Cooper et al present a lot.

However, I very much disagree with the "Represented Model"
versus "Implementation Model" discussions in Chapter 2.

The reason is, if the represented model is not the
implementation model, then (in most cases) the mismatch
between the implementation model and represented model will
"shine through".

"Domain Driven Design" uses different approach, described
