It sounds like Mike's and Carl's understanding of the word "freeze" is
really the issue. Mike seems to think that a frozen API cannot have
any new additions, while Carl repeatedly points out that proposed
additions to the frozen API are OK and expected, as long as backwards
compatibility is maintained.

Nah, a thread this long couldn't be just about such a simple misunderstanding :)
