This is useful information.  I'm not proposing that we close the door
entirely on forward compatibility features in-protocol, just that we
don't have a clear enough story yet.  I don't find "might want to make
progressive improvements" to be compelling enough to justify the
bit-expenditure.  For instance, new features that rely on new message
types could operate happily just using the extension points we
establish for message types.
