You bring up some great points.  Your question indicates that we need  
to add some "color" to Dain's post.

Hernan's roadmap has been out there for quite a while.  As I've  
mentioned a couple of times with my discussion with Hernan, this is a  
great place to get the bigger picture and for people to see what  
features are in the pipeline and who's working on them.

What Dain has posted is a tactical set of priorities for the v1.2  
release.  If someone wants to work on something for v1.2 that isn't  
on this list they are more than welcome to commit to adding it to  
that release.  I hope that that list was inclusive of all the  
features that people have committed to completing for v1.2.  If not,  
then we need to get them on this list.

I think that the idea was to feature items that allow us to  
concretely plan.  We cannot plan about features that have no  
resources assigned to them.
