So you buy a $insertbigthinghere and only use one half of it?
(bigthing = maybe a car with 300ps, and you only use 10, a fast
processor with >3.2GHz and you let it run only with 500MhZ).

No, that is what counts - in Debian you can only use it in a degraded

If we accept this and release without "the full mode" - we are simply
useless for a wide range of people in the future.
