I know it's natural.
I also get annoyed by some of those changes (including some that I
install).
But maintainers have to look further than that (although they have to
take it into account).

I have been using emacs since 1992 (Lucid emacs at Apollo Computer).
I am approaching 70 and still happy to change habits.  I am far more
concerned about emacs attracting new converts and new development
talent than humoring crotchety current users.  (Does anyone really
think that they will abandon the tribe?)  All reasonably well thought
out changes that make emacs more regular and easier for newbies to
master have my vote.

That's the attitude that makes emacs survive.
