I can't comment meaningfully on all of your proposal, but I would like 
this part very much. Ideally, I'd like *most* changes (that are more 
complex than a single patch) to be part of a feature branch, whether 
they're ABI breakers or not, to help with backporting. But having trunk 
be closer to release-ready at all times would be a big step forward.

(Aside: my current experiment with a feature branch, for the in-tree 
tests in trunk, is somewhat inconclusive. I screwed up the invocations 
and used a deprecated merge strategy, and I suspect it won't backport as 
cleanly as I wanted it to. Live and learn.)
