Here's the problem with that.

Pretty much any change (short of a crash fix) will qualify as breaking someone's workflow -- ie "it's different than what I'm used to"

It's been said many times over in this thread; nobody's forcing you to update anything. Your three-year-old Fedora/OSX/Windows/DOS/whatever installation works as well (and identically) today as the day it was released. Heck, go with something like RHEL and it'll be continually supported for a decade.

But don't complain about it lacking $randomfeature, because in the real world nothing is independent.

The command line in unix has decades of updates and even several complete reimplementations of various commands without breaking a persons muscle memory or workflow.

It is a cop out to say that you can't have that in other UIs.

Oh come on. Try doing anything vaguely advanced with GNU utilities and then use the same commandline on BSD. Try using ifconfig syntax with ip. tar has had several incompatible changes in option symantics.
