With the increasing complexity of User Interfaces (UI) it is more and more necessary to make users understand the UI. We promote a Model-Driven approach to improve the perceived quality through an explicit and observable design rationale. The design rationale is the logical reasons given to justify a designed artifact. The design decisions are not taken arbitrarily, but following some criteria. We propose a Quality Metamodel to justify these decisions along a Model-Driven Engineering approach.
