I may very well be wrong (this is not a rhethoric device, but just age:
I've been wrong more times than I can count!), but I perceive your
position as extreme.

The opposition is not there "to disable new developments". It's usually
there because some people (it's not /always the same/ people!) don't
like a change.

Surely some discussion is in order to either convince those people or to
redesign the change in a way that it hopefully makes people happy?
