That's true for almost any software project, and not only unreleased 
features :-)

In case the top-level order proposal is not accepted or if <import> 
will not be accepted or accepted with different behavior - Nicola can
still use the embed proposal or a fork of it ( I plan to have it match
the behavior of what gets accepted in ant16 ). 

I think the real important thing is to find the best solution - if that
would break Centipede or will be different than what embed does is
less important ( as long as it is a better solution ).
