Well at the early stages they kind of said that nothing is set in stone, even if they had further plans with a certain feature i guess they still wanted to hear what the community says about it and what alternatives we would like to see in case they need to scrap the original plan entirely (or make it an option for players who like it that way). Though I definitely agree with that in the upcoming weeks/months it would be nice to have more frequent communication of the direction they want to take with core features so we can focus our feedback accordingly.
