The features that get higher priority than std::hive are well
thought-out and discussed components of existing practice.
If you want to convince me that there's something unfair going on, you
need to start making more sense.
The scheduling decisions seem to be going in a fashion compatible with
the priority plan, and it could just as well
be said to be unfair if we suddenly deviate from that plan after
working according to it for all of the C++23 cycle.
For the remaining scheduling and prioritizing of Bucket 3 items, I'm
sure someone will be unhappy about every
possible decision that could be made, and the whole idea of the train
model we've operated with since
the C++14 cycle is that if you didn't get on a particular train, board
the next one.

There's of course the possibility of changing our planning and
execution approach. No proposals for doing that
have materialized, so the only logical conclusion is that the
complaints on various forums are not something
we should take seriously. The onus is on the complainers to prove otherwise.
