Quite. Also consider the applications. A great merit of the pyb library is its stability. I can't recall a single instance of a breaking change in 3.5 years of using it. Alas machine hasn't been quite as good in that regard, but breaking changes - at least in their effect on my applications - have been rare. As someone with quite a lot of MicroPython code this is a big deal.

If the CircuitPython devs keep open the option to make major breaking changes then users will have to decide whether the perceived benefits outweigh the potential drawback.

It's actually the other way around.

One of the reason I am actually considering CircuitPython over MicroPython for a project is the unified API between boards. That and ATSAMD support. I would however prefer the vanilla MicroPython API.
