Dmitri even agreed to add support for a flag to decide this, but never did: <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2012OctDec/0612.html>.

Agreement that Type 2 encapsulation is a future evolutionary step implies agreement that Type 1 encapsulation is an acceptable default (at least for the time being, if we charitably assume it could be changed later…).

So I think the debate is not so much whether Type 2 can be added later as much as its being considered a future and therefore ‘nice-to-have’ feature instead of a ‘must-have’ default. Tab suggests you started from the latter point of view before reality pushed you to the former. Looking forward to hearing more on the how and why...
