Won't they have to be rewritten anyway?

Being backwards compatible with UAs is a very worthy goal.  Being 
backwards compatible with every feature of every system used on the 
server side is unrealistic.  The server side is going to have to change 
to take advantage of WF2, no matter what we do.  It's unlikely that 
many old applications will be modified to use it, anyway.  It's much 
more likely to be used for new development.
