To a first approximation the consensus code *is* frozen; if we introduce
any consensus changes into it at this point it's due to a mistake, not
Of course, that's not including the two serious soft-fork proposals in
the air right now, Pieter Wuille's BIP62 and my CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY.
However dealing with proposed changes like those in an environment where
the competing implementations all use essentially the same
consensus-critical code is much easier than in an environment where they
don't; I say this on both a technical and political level.
