That large organization isn't running pure 1.4 plus a backport of demand
attach.  In other words, the work there doesn't necessarily port obviously
to the public tree.  Plus, a stable demand-attach is a good milestone for
releasing 1.5, and the fewer branches we can support, the more time we can
spend on other things.  :)
