Well, I'm going to be living those years anyway, and despite some 
occasional disagreements, I do enjoy developing for FPC!

Having a specification that the majority agrees upon would help in 
ensuring programmers don't fall foul of some of the nuances of the 
language, and having a committee for it stops absolute stinkers of 
features like the inlined var definitions in the most recent version of 
Delphi (yuck!).  Also, if I suddenly die from getting struck by a 
meteorite or something, at least most of the specifics of *pure* 
functions will be defined so someone can pick up where I left off if 
they feel up to it.
