As I said, it would be nice to get an updated version so we can see more

Its an alternative and brought up in that vain. Nothing more. Feel free to
respond to the BIP discussion (134) right on this list if you have any
opinions on it. They will be on-topic there. No problems have been found so
Lets get back to the topic. Having a longer fallow period is a simple way to
be safe. Your comments make me even more scared that safety is not taken
into account the way it would.
People are not even acknowledging the damage a contriversial soft fork of
the scope and magnitude of SegWit can have, and a simple request to extend
the fallow time for safety is really not a big deal.
