Forgive me if I'm misinterpreting this, but this reads to me as 
"If you don't contribute to the core language your views are not 

A sign of a potential echo-chamber in the higher parts of the 
language's hierarchy. Quite disturbing.

Somewhat relevant, a discussion about another survey a few years 
back, with the comment "Yes, leadership ignored it [the survey] 
almost completely.":


With an approach like this, wouldn't Phobos eventually end up as 
some kind of Frankenstein's code base? A huge blob of code full 
of historical baggage simply in the name of avoiding the word 
"breaking change"?
