While your criticism are sound and the issue of how to merge back
"rolling" after releases seems a difficult one to solve, I don't think
your comment on "how can we comment?" is fair.

We might disagree with the process Raphael is proposing, but my reading
of [1] is that he is asking for comments on the *goals* that, in his
opinion, "rolling" is supposed to fulfill. We can discuss whether those
goals are worthwhile or not even if there is no plan (yet) on how to
implement them.  Of course people might consider that a futile exercise,
but from an investigative point of view, it looks like an interesting
exercise to me.
