A plan contains tasks, timeline, milestones and especially roles &

Putting anything complex and core like the bytecode interpreter live will
always have residual risks, so what will change in a year or two ? 
Especially as development, test + review will need to be done outside the
mainstream activities/main branch, so by default with limited focus (if any)
from the broader community. 

Such a plan or an explicit or implicit commitment from some of the core team
