This is exactly my reaction. It is allways bad to skip existing
patterns without to have a better one.

Note, there is always a reason for a pattern. We didn't just
develop that for fun. I think the steering group should think
about what are the consequence if we skip someting and how
we can solve the problems which get solved based on patterns
they like to skip.

Right now it means, skip extra_requires forces us to add more
new package and include them in the original package for BBB
reason which will add back the same dependency like we tried
to skip with extra_requires. But now as a hard depenency. ouch!
