We (d-i team, mainly Joey) gave very good reasons why we thought the proposal was not good and would result in more problems than it solved. That you choose to structurally ignore the opinions, comments and objections by others who are a lot more knowledgeable about the _other_ area in Debian impacted by the proposal is typical. Your half-baked proposals may look good from a kernel maintenance viewpoint, but in our opinion they have a negative impact on the d-i side of the equation. Rejecting a badly thought out proposal is _not_ the same as saying no outright. I'm not going to repeat the arguments here. They can be found in the archives. Your attitude does nothing to motivate me to work on this.
