It is fair, one can have ones own view of what  they like or dislike 
without the concerns of others yet wishing others can help to test and 
comment on their pet features.  It is pretty sad if this is the main 
stream thoughts from developers - I hope  this is not the case.   But of 
course, we all like no rules and no obligations ;-).

Don't want to be deliberate on this roadmap discussion any more, but my 
point is - a roadmap or whatever you want to call it, is a tool to make 
things more "visible" up front and help the community to navigate - I 
will think a more productive way to get folks to help to test your 
feature is to make sure whatever you are working or want to work on is 
important enough to be on the roadmap so that it is visible to others, 
and any dependencies it has will be well planned and coordinated up front.
