Don't get me wrong - it's not a call for revolution neither for democratic system of controlling languages design. This article is to entertain reader and to present some interesting (at least to me) thoughts. Also I would be glad to see less of a cult in programming.

I have chosen specific cases where decision to implement a feature at some point was no brainer. I don't think we can use argument that those mentioned features are antithetical to the language main design. If that would be the case then why they are being added now? Have they suddenly become not antithetical? Let's ask Rob not to add generics to Go before he makes this huge mistake :)
