Not really. For 1.2, for example, we promised for ages and ages that
locking would be the big feature. We kept that promise, somewhat at
the expense of 1.2's release date IIRC.

Under the new proposal, 1.2 could have come out sooner, with some
other feature if it was ready, and locking would have come out in 1.3
instead.
