All of engineering involves compromise.

There is no point in waiting for a perfect solution to an engineering 
issue if that solution is so far away nobody wants to wait.

The compromises become political discussions and we have seen plenty of 
them already. As its 'the masses' that will implement the solution, not 
the idealists, its time to go with the compromise that has been 
hammered out elsewhere ... unless of course the idealists have a patch 
already.
