"We've always done it that way" isn't necessarily the best argument for a
particular action, but in this case, +1. Merge tracking doesn't suddenly
making the "soft costs" of branch management go away. Let's just
reverse-merge stuff we don't want (which should re-add those things to
STATUS, though we then want to move them into the 1.5.1 recommendations),
and carry on.
