I don't think you can blame the RM because most developers failed to
understand the effect. In fact 80% failed to show any interest at all
(did not vote). 16% voted in favour. 4% voted against. 
Developers have to accept responsibility for their own (in)actions.

Of course, titling these as "editorial changes" was a good trick, 
contributing to 80% of developers being uninterested.
