@ykgoon my personal name for this rule is "Remember Netscape 5"
(the story is, that after Netscape 4, they talked themselves into thinking that throwing away the codebase and starting over was a good idea. The result was such a delay that there was never a Netscape 5. There was eventually a Netscape 6, which was a backport from Mozilla after it was too late and Microsoft had already eaten Netscape's lunch.)
@ykgoon @nindokag maybe related to Chesterton’s fence. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Chesterton%27s_fence
