+1 and big thumbs up!

The direction and the list of goals sounds perfect! We can all rest
assured that we have a great team of experienced core developers and
long time contributors working on that important issue. The interaction
with the FLOW3 team provides us vital certainty that we're on the right
track and clearly demonstrate how we in the TYPO3 community share the
mission to "jointly innovate excellent free software".

Having such care and dedication for backwards compatibility is what sets
us apart from most other competitor CMSs. We take the "major release"
opportunity to clean up, but people can still rely that TYPO3 is still

That's the spirit! Thanks!

Go for it!
