I think it depends.  "Gratuitous incompatibility" is one thing, but
"refrain from relying on fixes, useful APIs etc that exist for years
already" is another.  The responsibility for keeping the core of XEmacs
in good working shape, or rather the cost for _not_ keeping the core of
XEmacs in good working shape should not be loaded off on Emacs
developers.  Why should we factually ignore years of work on making
Emacs more useful?
