Bold statement Mike.

So Otto - you cleary have no concept of heavy enterprise development. 
Here's the process:

- Account owner  / client asks for new section of website, or changes to 
current website
- DEV team (either in-house, or often in Enterprise, outsourced to a 
development agency) make said changes.
- Account owner / client will then need to review the change and approve 
it ready to go live (this person is very often non-technical, and in an 
Enterprise environment, so you can't start asking HOST file changes or 
DNS changes)
- DEV team then make said change live
- Account owner then approves change is live.
- Job is closed.

Sometimes we need to do this with time-delays etc ... when launching a 
specific product for a client, with new features etc ...


Can the list confirm two things then please?

1) WordPress is not looking to improve on Enterprise support as it's too 
small a use case? If so we'll start looking at more "grown-up" platforms 
for our clients.

2) If WordPress is so concerned about the DB content being "excatly" 
what you entered, why is there a filter that changes my Wordpress to 
WordPress (even in URLs that can be case-sensitive)?
