I dissent from this view. I strongly disagree with any characterisation of
the problem of code replacement in service being intractable, and I think
it is a false premise.

I realize I am probably a lone voice on this, but at *no* time have I felt
the "there are too many already" argument has merit, and it has materially
impeded several outcomes we now face, because of failure to accept the
necessary transition pain. The future is always bigger.

And as a consequence I disagree with this too. An orderly migration from
.ONION to another namespace is both feasible and capable of being planned
for.
