Could you elaborate on that? Is it a general argument that adding more things to the platform always makes it harder down the road to add more things due to having to figure out more interactions, or is there something specific with run-in that you think will get in the way? What kind of thing do you expect it to get in the way of?

Who knows. Some of us are new enough to this discussion that we may not know of all the arguments that had been presented against it in the past.
