The addition of a new piece of functionality does not immediately
taint or modify the core of what Fedora is.  Maybe instead of just
steadfastly asserting there should be no Change, you could work _with_
people as they try to include Change to address specific needs that
aren't being met.

Successful distros are evolutionary projects.  There is no "done" or
"final state" with them.  That doesn't mean they rip out the core
concepts and start over, but it does mean they adapt to new usecases
and challenges as they come up.
