This was discussed on DevCon, and from my notes this was decided:
"Look at the unofficial builds and commit the popular ones".

Of course, hacky patches (bad implementations) should not make it, maybe
rewritten?

The question is: should AA wait until we have MoB? And those margin things
wait for viewports?

I remember this was discussed but don't know what we said about that. For
me, they could all make it now (if they are good) and then reworked once we
get MOB/viewports/... This may sound like double work, but it depends on how
far in the future the new stuff is.

Same goes for the REP btw...

Just my thoughts
