"Not willing" is too strong, I think. Perhaps a more accurate description
is: aware of the limitations previously discussed; cautiously moving
forward despite said limitations because there are pains that we need to
address [1]; willing to consider concrete alternative proposals if and when
they become available and have reasonable support from community -- i.e.
not a spaceship design that we can use in >5 years.
