While I appreciate your point, and agree with the rationale behind it
(having something that works for very recent hardware would be good), I
personally find the way you express it rude for those whose principle
are on the side of sticking to the philosophy of the project, which is
to provide Free Software.

Calling those standing in that direction "self-harm faction" does not
seem good, and is actually doing harm to the project (from a project
member, is that what we should call self harming?).

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
