That is one of the options discussed on the issue.

Features can be added until beta1, and until that, additions are not the 
release manager decision.

All or most of the relevant people are nosy on the issue.  So a reminder 
there would be appropriate.  However, from my cursory scan, it is not 
clear if the 5 core devs involved (marked by blue and yellow snakes) 
agree on exactly what more should be added.  Perhaps you should 
summarize what you think there is and is not agreement on.
