Sure doesn't seem that way here ...

I thought you just said this was a community driven project, not one
directed by a small number of core people with 'influence'?

That's not written content as such though - which is the issue here.
(Though I must admit to having that switched off also).

WordPress isn't Matt's company, it's the community's project. This
addition to core was discussed in dev chats just like every other
addition in WordPress. Like Matt said, WordPress development is a
meritocracy. If you wanted to influence the direction of core, you
should contribute and earn the respect that will get you that influence.
I've been watching this thread for the last two days and think this is
the silliest argument I've ever seen. If you don't like the filter,
remove it! It's one line of code. Did you know that WordPress also
changes regular quotes to curly quotes with a filter, and -- to en-dash
and --- to em-dash and ... to elipses?! OH THE INHUMANITY!!!
