I agree with this. YUI wasn't all that popular even when it was
supported. I'm a Bugzilla developer, and I haven't bothered to learn it :-)

I would certainly back a process where we stepped back and looked at
where things are now in client side web development best practice and
where they are going. This should be led by someone who had already
heard of Grunt, Broccoli, Gulp, Backbone, React, Ember, Polymer,
Angular, Mocha, Casper and Karma before reading the YUI announcement! (I
hadn't heard of most of them - perhaps that's just me, though.)
