Here comes the non-technical point-of-view:

Who are our clients?

The question is (again) important because considering the actual 
PHP5-on-shared-hosting fiasco...

So, do we restrain ourselves by doing double and triple workaround 
development or we use cutting edge with the idea that TYPO3 will be, in 
the future, for people with full control over their web servers?

My impression at the moment considering the initial roadmap published at 
http://typo3.org/teams/5.0-development/roadmap/ is that TYPO3 5.0 will 
require such control.

Yes we will lose the "seasoner" CMS newbie trying TYPO3 because it's 
supposed to be powerful but at the end we will have a real *Enterprise 

One of the important thing to consider will be to clearly state that 
future version of TYPO3 in 2 years, will require such control over the 
installation. I know right now it's still a matter to debate but on the 
other hand, if it's already clear, then it should be officially stated.
