Come on, please don't put that as a "we have to trust the artists" issue... I 
fully trust them when it's about art but:
1) It has to be pointed that this case could have technical implications;
2) We're really close to the release now, and it just appeared now.

In my previous mail the most important point IMO was the point (4): it's 
sending the wrong signal to people...

I disagree here, it's a way to do a last "marketing noise" to the last minute, 
and it's getting beyond ridiculous in this case.

In this case can I commit a couple of small trivial pet features I have but 
disabled by default?
(I hope people are getting my point now... it's fine to freeze artwork later, 
but letting the artists in free for all mode for the whole cycle is just no 
good for other contributors motivation)


PS: And now I blame myself because I sent yet another mail in this thread.
