    They sound like a really important policy change: allowing a
    proprietary platform to be the first one to have features that are not
    specific to the platform.  Are you sure?

I don't think that description applies to these things.
I would call them adaptations of existing features
to fit the platform.

Specifying colors with a slightly different format is not particularly
useful except for compatibility with MacOS.  If we ever find that
discourages someone from moving away from the Macintosh, we could make
Emacs accept those formats on other platforms -- it won'tbe hard --
but I doubt that will happen.

As for tiling instead of stippling, perhaps  I have misunderstood.  Do
you think some users will see that as a feature?
