Yes, I think that's what he meant.

IMHO that wasn't a problem lately. When we got closer to 2.4 several 
pieces were removed, because they were not well tested, not 
well-documented or didn't work. Determining the stuff to remove from the 
release wasn't a difficult or controversial discussion. So I'd say no 
further hard rules on which additions to trunk will make it into a 
further release are needed.
