We are not at feature freeze time yet, so it is not time to talk about
reverting anything yet. Also, not being accepted is not the same as
being rejected to the point of reversal. First and foremost it means
that the feature will not be touted as one of the major breakthroughs 
of F9. 

Looking at the two features that have been cited, we have every
intention to finish them for F9. I assume that finishing the feature
itself takes priority over keeping the wiki page uptodate...
