s/must/should/g? However it's characterized, I think your jugements
and opinions are generally sound, and I intend to put them into
action.

Explosive? That's certainly not the intent here. The project is
changing direction in a big way. Collaborating with others on the
crypto API will be an important part of that. Announcing the change in
direction, those intentions, a rationale on why it will be okay, and
inviting collaboration is a responsible thing to do at the earliest
opportunity. Better to announce intent early rather than surprise
people or deter potential collaborators by keeping plans secret.
