[infinispan-dev] Infinispan 7.0 feature freeze and future planning

Not so theoretical question. 
What about features that are being refined (like clustered / remote listener as seen int he recent days).
Are these improvements to be removed under the feature freeze hammer. That would possibly impact our ability  to do them in 7.x if APIs change.
Or are they part of the maturation cycle after feature freezing?
