OK, how about this criterion: we might deviate when deviation does
not prevent any standard-conforming program from building correctly,
but that does allow large parts of existing codebases to continue
to work.

By all means, implement new items in the draft.

But I am worried that you are being much too aggressive about deprecation.
550 broken Debian packages is not a good sign.  Have you checked with your
colleagues about just how big a job you're handing them, getting Fedora or
RHEL6 to work with 4.3?
