    initial v1  
    1 I agree with @joostdevalk and @johnbillion that we need a defined list of static environments. That is what Core is supposed to do. Set a standard for the entire community. If the list is able to be changed, then this entire set of functionality might as well not exist. One plugin will call it `stg` and another will call it `staging` or 'stage' or whatever else they want. If they are allowed to be changed, the only standardization that will happen is at the host level, where if your site is hosted on say WP Engine, they set the environment definitions for you. But what happens when you transfer you site to another host and they use a different set of terms? It is completely disjointed. This feature/list of environments is solving a real problem that the largest plugins and hosting providers are running into. Yoast, JetPack, WooCommerce. I am more than happy to follow their lead on this since they have built such amazing, widespread pieces of software. The next step for this feature, since it is so new, is proper education and documentation so that people are using each environment as intended.
