This was my feeling too -- on the call last week I made the same proposal to avoid any reuse of the old names.

I think at the very least Mozilla and Chrome (and ideally Safari, too) would need to support the new version in roughly the same timeframe, would need to throw a "deprecation warning", and would need to have a concerted plan to shut off the old version in roughly the same timeframe, too.  Oh, and make sure IE doesn't support the old one at all.  :)
