Why? Because there was one GR before sarge for the exact same thing
saying we would postpone the requirement for etch. Now that etch is
supposed to be released, you want to postpone until etch+1. The thing
is that at that pace, it will never be fixed.
Either we make a binding promise that we *will* fix the issue for the
next release, or we just change the social contract to fit the fact
we're not going to fix it. Oh wait, the SC just got changed the other
way around. Well, then, let's keep the promises and stop postponing.
