the deployment of Vector did cost some money and also forced a lot of

If this is a valid argument - that technical changes should not be
made if it would make work for other volunteers - then God forbid
development continue on MediaWiki. See the current thread on
what to do about the problem, given that freezing MediaWiki in
perpetuity is really just not going to happen.
