Is this a problem? Are there any changes that you would like to revert?

Goals are pointless if nobody will do anything to reach them.

I don't know what you're missing. I'm not saying that the Trunk image is 
perfect, but it's much better than 3.9 or 3.10.

Let me copy the goals of the process again from 

"The goals

The goal of this process is to get rid of as many hurdles as possible in 
the contribution process. We are trying to enable the community at large 
to improve Squeak, the core of the system and its supporting libraries."

According to these goals we are doing it pretty well.
