We spent some summit time discussing just this:

The summary here is IMO:
 - ops will follow where we lead BUT
 - we need to take their needs into account
 - which includes robustness, operability, and so on
 - things where an alternative implementation exists can be
uptake-driven : e.g. we expand the choices, and observe what folk move

That said, I think the fundamental thing today is that we have a bug
and its not fixed. LOTS of them. Where fixing them needs better
plumbing, lets be bold - but not hasty.
