I have a slightly less rigid attitude: as long as there's a good story about
the alternative backends, that they don't break the build and the limitation
is documented, then I'm fine with an implementation that "heads further" with
one of the backends than the other(s). If not, we'll get a situation where the
multitude of backends will hamper innovation as users will just not do things.
