It isn't an assumption. The question is whether the features are
worth the costs, but it is quite undeniable that features have a
cost. For instance, some aspects of Python are not used by most
programs in any significant way. So you can make a language that
is somewhat faster covering the same ground, as long as you
exclude those not-so-frequently exploited aspects of the language.
