I'm not sure I'd used the word "misplaced" regarding the backwards
compatibility issue ... that implies we don't know where it went :-)
"Relaxed" might be better.

Yes, I know you're probably still stinging a bit about getting bit
by draft messages requiring a From: header.  Believe me, that change
wasn't made lightly and we had a serious debate about it (but with
remarkably few dissenters).  It's a constant balancing act between
"make sure old stuff worked" and "bring in new features".  Admittedly,
that wasn't so much of a new features as cleaning up a bunch of
junk which barely worked in the first place.  But as a side effect
we got a bunch of new features out of it.
