I agree that schedules sometimes slip, but my point was that if we want to finish anytime soon, we need to stop adding new features and bring focus to closing on the open issues.  There is already some discussion about HTTP/3 on this list, and we need to ask ourselves what new things are really important for this version vs. a future one.  Continuing to add new functionality will risk delaying much further than early next year.
