Comment (by jorbin):

 Basing our decisions upon only the users and developers we have
 specifically spoken is fairly poor idea. Changing the behavior of an API
 is something that we should do without clearly articulating and sharing
 well in advance. At a minimum, it's something that should never happen
 when we are half way through beta, but ideally it's something we never do
 period. Even if the original intent of this filter was to shut down XML-
 RPC completely, the fact that it has behaved this way for 9 versions sets
 the expectation that it doesn't do that.
