Can't tell,
If it could be ready/stable it surely worth to be included.

so imply sandbox or local copy waiting for the next release.

Idea i guess was to focus dev effort on releasing...

But why not a branch if it makes sense.

If we could wait till at least end of May
or better end of June it's fine for me.
