How about lining up some features for removal.

C++, Fortran, and Java are big, complicated languages, that keep getting
bigger and more complicated because of the obsession with backward
compatibility. D is already a big, complicated language. If people like
straighforward (not necessarily simple) languages, then the inference is
quite easy.
