Some questions:

        Doesn't this place an undue burden on the contributor with the first incompatible patch to prove worthiness?  What happens if it is decided that it's not good enough?

        How many will it take before the dam will break?  Or is there a timeline going to be given before trunk gets set to 4.x?  

        Given the number of committers that openly ignore discussions like this, who is going to verify that incompatible changes don't get in?

        Longer term:  what is the PMC doing to make sure we start doing major releases in a timely fashion again?  In other words, is this really an issue if we shoot for another major in (throws dart) 2 years?
