   - For the dynamic crowd - more strictness is not equivalent to progress, and as such - they don't want to see future versions of PHP forcing them in that direction.  They still want to get other types of new features (non-strictness related), better performance, bug fixes, new extensions and such.  Making PHP stricter with newer versions means that for many users - upgrading would mean going backwards as far as their development preferences are concerned.   - For the dynamic crowd - more strictness is not equivalent to progress, and as such - they don't want to see future versions of PHP forcing them in that direction.  They still want to get other types of new features (non-strictness related), better performance, bug fixes, new extensions and such.  Making PHP stricter with newer versions means that for many users - upgrading would mean going backwards as far as their development preferences are concerned.
