Sorry, but I don't think "You need a text editor written in CoffeeScript" qualifies as an opinion for a general purpose web framework. I'd rather see them spending time on adding missing features to ActiveStorage (i.e. proper CDN support, see this discussion on the issue).

I have to think the people focused on ActiveStorage features aren't being bottlenecked by work like this. I that the feature is questionable but I can't imagine it was a huge burden on the rest of Rails' productivity.

Maybe. Though ActiveStorage was extracted from Basecamp, the maintainer has not been very open to user feedback/requests so far and now they add something that ties in with ActiveStorage, which may mean they are even less likely to change it in ways that don't exactly match their use case. Anyway, we're moving away from ActiveStorage for our projects and use Shrine instead.
