There is a conflict with the historic stability focus of
EE with a desire to explore MP innovations.
The question is perhaps, why is this desire for innovation not expressed for JAX-RS, CDI, JSON, ... on which MP depends?
For those specs MP is seemingly happy with the pace of innovation that's (expected) in Jakarta EE. Why wouldn't this hold for mature and by now stable specs like Config?
Or put differently, do we expect wild and huge incompatible changes in Config any time soon?
