No, not for some time at least. People have a need for these features
now, hence are developing them now. I think those changes should be
allowed to go in. The only alternative for them would be to fork phoenix
elsewhere, which we don't want.

When we get to the stage where it starts looking like a single
profile-based container is viable, it might actually become a stable
product within like 3 months, and it has been assured there's a good
migration path from phoenix, then I will definitely agree on a phoenix
feature freeze.
