I'm optimistic that we'd be able (and willing!) to make room for such needs.

I just said (or meant to say) that we included some, but not all
suggestions we received over the past few weeks, and that we're going to
reconsider adding the ones we did not include now in next year's roadmap.

Note that we picked 12 months as timeframe, not 6, because that seemed
to make more sense at the time we started writing this roadmap in
September 2017. The idea was to generate input for the fundraising team,
and my understanding was that a 6 month timeframe wouldn't be enough for

Hope this makes sense.
