There was a thread, I cant quite find it however.
A few of us spoke up against the idea — but there was a lot of "Herpa derp I once edited something... so make the BV nice! XD," while actual users voiced that throwing web-components into something, to replace native ones was a bad idea and would require so many affordances to be forced into being, for little gain at the end of the day.
Admittedly, I have thrown caution to the wind and run against users before, and it's never going to be clear cut when that happens. So I can sympathise on some level, but it's not worth getting mad about, I'm happy that the work is done by someone that isn't me
