I think you are missing the point others are making by only reasoning:
they say it warrants going to 1.4, therefore,
it is big, therefore,
it is likely to break things, therefore
a beta cycle is required.

Whereas others seem to be saying:
it is a big added feature, therefore
it could warrant going to 1.4; however,
it isn't likely to break things, therefore
no beta cycle is required.

Just my analysis of you folks meaning "big" in two different senses,
with drastically different conclusions.  I personally have no opinion
on the matter.
