1.0 compatibility mode exists to deal with the cases where we have had no choice
 but to introduce incompatible changes. It doesn't give us free license to
introduce incompatible changes whenever we can think of ways of improving the
design. We have a responsibility to keep the cost of transition from 1.0 to 2.0
to a minimum, not just to provide a compatibility mode that allows people an
easy path for the first half of that transition.

I don't think this change in the design has sufficient benefit to justify the
high costs it will impose on many of our existing users, and the resulting
damage to our reputation.
