> Dead wood really does stifle innovation.

Sort of tautology, eh?

And why is innovation good as such, except as a marketing slogan?

What's wrong with stability, especially when stability ensures that I
own my own data?

Sounds like flame-bait, and I really need to get back to work, but all
too often that word, "innovation" hides a lot of unexamined assumptions
that are taken for granted by uncritical minds.
