No, dead serious. The libraries have a library submission process.

Compare me changing my tagsoup library, to me changing my filepath
library which comes bundled with GHC. I can do anything I want to the
tagsoup library, but I need to wait at least 2 weeks and get general
consensus before changing filepath.

Also some libraries on hackage are "0.1" etc - even the author doesn't
particularly think they are stable!
