New disruption causing ideas are also the food for innovation and 
progress. Bring them on, we need them.
I think RH / CentOS strike a reasonable / measured balance, more or less 
freeze a set of function / capability for each major release - only 
release security patches and changes that are necessary to maintain 
functioning across the www.
Then with each major release do a jump - yes this is disruptive - yes it 
means learning new ways of doing old things, hopefully those making 
these decisions in RH have the knowledge and perspective to make the 
calls / evaluations necessary.
If you think you can do better, go get a job at RH.
