Pretty much this.I don't think that there's any dispute over whether or not CDPR will be listening to their fans - they've already made that clear.
But there is a big difference between soliciting feedback now and the type of involvement that some people have been suggesting in this thread. The key thing here is that it's CDPR who get to decide whether, when, and how the fans are involved. I'm pretty sure most of you are aware of that, but it's maybe worth repeating.
It's also maybe worth reminding people that when CDPR got so much negative feedback for Geralt's New Face on TW2 it was probably a big PITA to change it at last minute, after promo material had already been released. Getting user input early can be helpful - it isn't always an overhead in time and costs.
