Oh, I don't totally disagree with your premise. Two of our core values
are "First" and "Features". If someone is using Fedora then they want
to be on top of the latest open source goodness. Isn't that the point?
But we may also want to understand what that does to our user and
contributor base. There is a lot of variability around the world, and
around our base. We need to balance the need to provide people with the
latest and greatest against the possible reduction in our base, and
should we make such a change, we would want to be very careful how we
frame it, to avoid unnecessarily alienating a larger group.
