Point taken.  But it is hard to be succinct about it, but we try. We aim for

 - predictable releases dates (and doing well at a maintained two-months cycle)

 - increased tests over time, and we generally pass all existing tests

ie a release does everything previous releases did, and often a bit more each time.

So stuff doesn't just disappear.  But we have limited time and resources and
cannot expand all aspects all the time.  Some stagnate. C'est la vie.
