Ben isn't "forcing" us to make any changes.  He is just sharing his  
opinion in a friendly/constructive tone.  It's good to know people's  
opinion, or to talk about them.

Ben is right when he says that there are a large number of people  
using Drupal to create brochure websites, and that there is plenty of  
room for improvement in that area.  Like Ben, I think i18n is getting  
increasingly important.  It's critical functionality.  Similarly,  
security is getting increasingly important and one day the security  
state of the contributed modules is going to backfire like there is  
no tomorrow.  I second many of Ben's statements.  At the same time, I  
disagree with his statement that core should change less only because  
we should care more about his customers getting screwed.
