Right.  And the problem is that the d-i team seems to say to
themselves, "as long as we never do the work, we can badger the rest
of Debian into sacrificing the Project's principles, and the work will
never be necessary."

The solution requires a little stick to go with the carrot:

"I'm sorry, but the fact that you dithered for eighteen months does
not mean the Project must now sacrifice its principles so that you can
dither some more."
