Plenty of systems can and do evolve their community forward with it. The sentiment of backwards compatibility at all costs is the same that leads you down the road of having to support IE 7. No one is saying play fast and loose with core functionality, but do it responsibly and with community input.

They really should be taking a look at modern systems like Concourse CI to see what they can do to improve.
