That sounds like a free-for-all.  With the development cycles of Emacs,
rushing in last-minute features might come at costs of half a year.

I'd rather suggest putting down a "soft freeze" right now where anything
significantly featuresome requires list/maintainer approval.  In
essence, this is vaguely the state Stefan handed over: I considered this
somewhat fuzzily the prevailing mood to be picked up from discussions on
the list.
