That sounds like the same reasoning they used when deploying VE to enwiki with
known bugs unfixed. I think we all know how well *that* went.

I realize the proposed deployment of Flow to enwiki is somewhat different since
it's a deployment to two rather out-of-the-way talk pages rather than being
enabled by default for everyone. But on the other hand, it's also that much
less likely to give you the sort of feedback you're hoping for. And certain
vocal community members will be on the defensive given the recent VE situation,
ready to blast "the WMF" for doing the "same" thing again.

I also want to avoid causing our volunteer community members to develop towards
an API with known major flaws by pushing it on a production site before it's
ready. The test wikis and mediawiki.org, while in production, are still test
sites.
