That's the impression I get from reading this forum. DIPs that 
are small tweaks that breaks nothing or very little often get 
positive feedback. DIPs that makes big breaking changes or tries 
fork in a new piece of technology often has more controversy 
around it. Now, you would say that this is completely natural but 
still I haven't seen that big enthusiasm regarding the bigger 
changes. That's my observation when it comes to D. When it comes 
to other languages, I don't know but they are often governed in 
some other fashion like C++.
