Yes, and I agree with all that, however there is the need to balance between
breaking everything and letting everything through. If -- like it is happening
right now -- people are paranoid about upgrade paths, then .dev moves to
something where no actual development happens.
If you want to move forward, you will have to allow breakage now and then.
This is the way with all projects. If you don't allow that, people will move
elsewhere with their contributions and .dev will get stale rather than stable.
