This is important, because I don't think that anyone is in a position to judge whether they are "working on a self-contained change" or whether they're "not going to interfere" _unless_ they are telling people what they are working on.


The cost of filing a blueprint (as soon as you start thinking about a
feature) is really small compared to the advantages stated above.

I guess I'm not seeing any advantage in *not filing* a blueprint. I hope
it's not about saving 5 minutes. I hope it's not about avoiding public
discussion that developing in the open can trigger...
