*Is* it a decision, or is it a proposal?  The wording is unclear.

Looks like we're going to have that anyways.  Many people are seeing this
as a decision, handed down by a small group of people.  If that's the
case, then some people are going to be upset.

I personally think the idea is a good one; maintainers can concentrate on
common architectures, and we can potentially have a sane release cycle. 
Meanwhile, porters can have full control of when and what they release,
without being constricted by others' deadlines and such.  Unfortunately,
the naming (second class citizen?), and the feeling that their
architectures are no longer "officially supported", means that people will
view this as a negative thing.
