Actually, YARN-398/YARN-392 and other such optimizations can go in in future too releases in a compatible manner too since we have PB-based protocols in YARN (as in HDFS).

However, they serve to illustrate why having a very narrow view of 'allowed' changes for the next 3-4 weeks will just add needless complexity.

IAC, like I said it would be better to let individual contributors decide on risk of individual changes since they are the ones supporting them. Having a strict policy leads to all sorts of further dialogues and issues we could do well without.
