Hi Roberto,

My personal .02 - publishing this on the Independent stream will cause confusion, because the RFC Series will be seeming to recommend two paths forward at the same time. We discussed the status of the old constructs extensively and came to consensus that the best thing to do was to encourage uniform use of the new constructs' semantics and syntax consistently. 

I think that the best thing to do is wait and see how the new specification is taken up -- that will take some time, of course. 

Cheers,
