It's a worry that some users prefer new "features" over standards compliance and quality control.

It is extremely rare for features to have a negative impact on standards compliance.
It is not uncommon for features to enhance standards compliance.

Whether or not a new feature hinders or enhances quality control, depend upon how well the affected 
source code is documented and how structured the program as a whole is.  

One of the major obstacles that Microsoft ran into, and why it could not adhere to EEU court 
rulings, was that its source code was not documented, and the overall program was completely 
unstructured.   Both Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice are refactoring the OOo codebase, so that 
quality control related to standards compliance is enhanced.

Your documents, your language, your way.
