I don't think that's a bad thing. ;) I'm probably not alone in being pretty
ambitious in work I propose at UDSes, and over the course of a cycle, reality
hits and work items start to get postponed.  I hope shorter cycles will lead
to more realistic planning.

However, not everything will be captured in 3-month blueprints.  Some
transitions and larger scale changes just take a long time.  I knew for
example that some of the things I wanted to accomplish since the last LTS
would take 2 years to fully realize.  Cycle-linked blueprints aren't a good
way to track that work, IMO.
