It comes down to liability.  If Adobe did not test it, they don't want to
certify it, and even if Apache signed it, Adobe still doesn't want

I know for a fact that several enterprise apps are not using RSLs because
they've already made monkey-patches to the framework.

Are you sure your apps are benefiting from signed RSLs and that using more
modules wouldn't make your app faster?

Anyway, I agree it will be problem, but we will have to learn to live with
it.  My longer term goal is to make RSLs obsolete by improving modularity in
the framework.
