I always tried to make sure Vimpulse worked as much like Vim as
possible.  If somebody thought Vim behavior could be improved, then I
wanted them to email the Vim mailing list and get the change made in
Vim.  Once the change was made in Vim, then the same change could be
made in Vimpulse.

This would provide two advantages.

*  People who use both Vim and Vimpulse could use the same keys in both.

*  It would be possible to one day copy and paste from the Vim
documentation into the Vimpulse documentation, maybe by an automated
Vimpulse .txt-format-help-file-generation script.

But now that Alessandro is maintainer, it is his choice whether to
continue to enforce this policy or not.
