What should one read to understand the issues that lead to this change?

+1. This seems like a change of direction which has *huge* implications for issues like availability (the feature doesn't work if my device is offline?), privacy (my device is sending microphone input to the cloud?), and cost (how much of my expensive metered data does this gobble up?) that need to be openly considered and discussed.

The original "Intent to prototype" seemed to be about an entirely device-local feature, which means it had fundamentally different characteristics.
