I think if Ingo ran a tree per subsystem he maintains, plus a -tip that rolls them up (or ditched it in favor of -next or kept the roll-up private to his test infrastructure), it wouldn't attract so much blame and annoyance. In fact, nothing at all seems to get into mainline through a pull that isn't more specific than "-tip", so if people are complaining generically about "-tip", Ingo isn't presenting things well.
