I would view this as unnecessary tinkering that could just as well
wait until v11, although it's such a small change that I am not
prepared to spend much time arguing if you're determined to force it
through.  The point of the feature freeze is to focus effort on the
things that we need to do in order to be able to get a beta and then a
final release out the door, and to get them out the door on time and
with adequate quality.  Whether or not a change which doesn't further
those goals is technically speaking a feature isn't really relevant in
my view.  The point is to mop up the loose ends and ship, and to avoid
things that have a chance of creating new loose ends.
