And, whenever you remove a feature from a large project, no matter how meaningless or crappy, you will find somebody who cares.

By this sense, changing from GNOME 3 to Cinnamon would be a regression.
No. If things is mostly the same but has different name people expect that some features will not be available. When something is billed as "pure upgrade" but it removes features - people become quite vocal. Is it fair? No. But that's life. Deal with it.

Sounds like a meaningful conversation to me. Where's the confusion?

In GNOME -- yes. In other reasonable projects that is simple not true. I would say that for most projects that is not true.
