Hmm, but isn't it better to post a feature-check-in-request than
noting something down on the feature list (users may be happy to see the

I'd not directly say commit it, but maybe we could
think about a compromise ?
Or do you just see 'Feature freeze -> no' ?

I understand that having rules is good and needed, but
