But, as discussed, we previously agreed limit features in a minor version, as per the release
lifecycle (and I continue to endorse this decision)

    All releases that don't break any compatibilities as our documented
    guidelines dictate (wrt. upgrades, api, cql, native protocol, etc).  Even
    new features can be introduced without compatibility breakages (and should
    be as often as possible).

    Honouring semver does not imply more releases, to the contrary it is just
    that a number of those existing releases will be minor instead of major.
    That is, it is an opportunity cost to not recognise minor releases.
