Now multiply what you think is a reasonabe effort with the number of 
downstreams and you end up with an unreasonable amount, and the mandate for us 
to keep things as simple as possible. The proposal of different release 
rhythms and versions is now completely unreasonable.

I think you're vastly underestimating the value of consistency, and frankly, 
I'm at a loss why as you're usually a very reasonable guy. Maybe you should 
just trust the amount of negative reactions (and the fact that they come from 
/all the right people/ and forget about your proposal. Trust the elders.
