Hi Matt,

My interpretation of the email you referenced, was to help 'fast-track' two
things: 1. new 'features' that didn't require a spec to be written and 2.
new 'features' that are out of scope or something that just won't work for
whatever reason.

I believe it may be true (although I haven't read all the proposed specs)
that no one has actually followed that process, but I don't know if that
means we should not provide that as a choice. Are you interpreting it as
'You must follow this process' as opposed to 'You could choose to follow
this process'?
