There is no proper balance. If you believe in the policy "no new
features", this policy is absolute - it would be pointless to accept
some new features, but reject others on grounds of the policy.

This policy is mutually exclusive with "new features are fine as long
as they don't break anything". You can get opinions, but you cannot
get consensus.
