Why bother convincing Contrib maintainers that tracking core HEAD is a bad
idea? If you don't like it, don't do it.
Some people actually do track HEAD and I am very thankful for them. In
particular, these people actually use the APIs that are being dreamed up in
HEAD. This fixes bugs and refines APIs *before* the code freeze. For
example, og converted to using the node arbitrator stuff during the release
cycle and as a result a few improvements were made before freeze.
