We will definitely care as well as we move directly on top of Cordova.  Cordova is being adopted
more and more as a platform that others will build on.  A certain level of predictability
and stability in a platform is certainly appreciated at least. ;)  

We will be heavily invested in the plug-in approach here at BlackBerry so that is of special
concern if it is unstable.

I care. Or in other words, the users of my product (which embeds Cordova) care. I get yelled
at by my users when their app breaks when doing an in-place upgrade from version n-3 to n
of Cordova.
