I fully agree that locking down the ABI prematurely would be detrimental to the long-term future of the language.

Part of the point of the ABI manifesto is to scope out what are the desirable or critical changes needed before ABI gets locked down.  From that we can have concrete discussions on what’s left to be done, how much work it will take to get there, etc.
