My point is that they are not so rare -- there is a systematic tendency
for that to happen.

I am proposing a systematic way to make them less likely, by helping
people take notice that a UI change is being proposed, so they can
object quickly.

My proposal will help with that problem too.  Instead of waiting for a
resolution of the dispute, we should install the change with a user
option variable to enable the new behavior.  That bypasss the dispute.
