While I'm sympathetic to the scheduling concerns, I think it's more
responsible for us to hold up the specs for an extra month or two
to resolve these issues to provide the best feature design for authors,
than to increase the amount of syntactic options and backwards-
compatibility concerns they have to juggle just because we wanted to
ship Masking a few weeks earlier.
