I'm sorry for the misunderstanding caused by my poor organisation of the
wiki page. This is not part of the roadmap, but is part of our list of
ideas. As such, I think it is valid to raise and think about; talk about
it's pros and cons. But that's all what it is so far - an idea asking if
it would bring any benefits.

I've never considered it in such a detail. So well said. I couldn't
agree more.

I've moved our ideas on to a separate page to make the key points for
the next release (3.0) more readable.

Cheers for the feeback!
