On the other hand, bindings are kind of "downstream" to us. They can only be 
done once our interfaces are stable (which happens by means of freeze). So if 
we don't allow bindings developers a longer open trunk, we'd force them to 
chase a moving target and to stop working when they can finish off their 

IMO, that grants an exemption. Bindings are just "special". :)
