Do you read and answer only to the first sentence? Can you 
honestly say "D design is rock solid and correct, we will never 
be required to make any backwards-incompatible change"?

If you check those evidences, it was never breaking code alone. 
It was breaking code AND lack of any sane process that allows to 
stick with acceptable release version for longer time. And I 
suggest to fix the right thing, not freeze specs and hope all 
problems will fade themselves.
