Hah! Your explaination of how the process probably went down is incredibly insightful, and I can't imagine it happening any other way.

I find it exceedingly difficult to believe that it was marketing that got this right and engineering that got it wrong. IME this sort of user-hostile data collection is never driven by the guys writing the code.

In a miscommunication is anyone really right? There are two sides here; if marketing had communicated their needs more clearly, as well as taken the time to test the product throughly themselves (yeah it's a beta version, I know...), the error might have been caught.
