While incremental steps forward are great, how do you avoid situations
like VNET, where a "good enough" enough implementation, usable in some
scenarios lingered for years in kernel, but to this day it suffers from
leaks and bugs. Once you go down the path of enabling it in this state,
chances are that it will stay that way for more than half a decade.

We happened to use VNET at our last company with great success. Had it not existed we would have been much further away from our goals. Maybe you picked a bad example? :)

Look, take a look at history and the Linux kernel threads story and its impact on FreeBSD. If you'd like I can talk about it.
