[TYPO3-core] (New) TYPO3 CMS Vision

Hi Oliver, hi all!

The discussion is getting more specific about features, still I am not
sure if we agree about the vision yet.

I am reluctant to phrase a vision for TYPO3 CMS because I think that our
main goal should be to carry the legacy of it.

This is not half as exciting as other visions seem to be, but that's
also not my main point. I want to provide a great product for the users
who are working with TYPO3 right now. We should always focus on their
needs first.

TYPO3 is legacy, not bleeding edge. If we focus on the bleeding edge
(changing workflows, frameworks, etc.) then we will mainly disappoint
the existing users. I repeat myself when I say that Neos is the bleeding
edge, not CMS.

Yet there are many features which TYPO3 lacks. For example, I really
like the suggestions that Felix brought up. If this was the roadmap for
the next three versions of TYPO3 CMS, then it would absolutely kick ass!

My wish is that we can agree on the direction and accept one or the
other inconsistency and detour that exists in TYPO3 CMS. Instead, the
focus should be put on features which serve the operators, integrators,
editors who are working with TYPO3 today and for the next few years...

Greetings, Michael
