I was reacting to a request for thoughts. I firmly believe that there 
should be a relatively unrestricted brainstorming phase before one tries 
to implement things. I have often noticed a lot of counterproductive 
bickering about use cases and implementations on the developers list, 
but luckily not so much here. There is something like premature 
optimizations with respect to creative processes too!
