Technical debt is definitely something to worry about, however I think most companies' first priority is a working product.

Technical debt is to be handled during the development cycle, not in source code and most of the issues you bring up (bloated software, version pinning) are solved in build systems and again should not be handled by source code.

Anyone working in an enterprise enviorment, especially that has clients on different systems, would instantly crumble without being able to target specfic builds.

Legacy and long term support software is everything.

>Go should reject version pinning as incompatible with the goals of Go.

This would instantly make go a 'no-go' in any enterprise enviorment.
