Code freezes do happen. Once we have a release, its API does not change
(may be a tiny bit occasionally, but not normally).

What we do not freeze is APIs between releases. How can we move forward
from 4.7 to 6.6 with the API remaining the same? Where would the new
stuff go? Are you advocating we keep APIs forever?

Read my comment here on where the energy should be focussed (migration tools,
transitional releases, and compatibility layers).
