In all fairness, I was referring to my own work, and IIRC I also 
excluded complex productivity apps.

What other people do is up to them.

I almost never see tooltips in any app since it rarely occurs to me to 
slow down what I'm doing to hover my mouse to find out whether or not 
the designer has written a hidden description there.  I usually just 
click it and see what happens.  If the action that happens is a 
destructive one THEN it wasn't designed correctly. :)
