That is a valid reason. If there's a simpler way to do something, then 
the simpler way should win. It's about KISS.

I don't think that reason has ever come up. A vast majority of the JEPs 
lack implementations. The reason that's so is that the new JEP rate is 
much faster than the new JEP implementation rate.
