We don't like it, but the alternative is that you have partially broken
signatures. If we demand that signatures stay where they are, we are
demanding they stay broken when it comes to cooperating with other,
stable syntax - namely, subroutine attributes. This is literally broken
by design, in that sense.

Honestly, I feel this is getting ridiculous. We cannot even change
experimental features that were *always* experimental because people
already started using it?
