While I agree with this too, you might want to actively solicit Ben
Reser's opinion. I seem to recall him being pretty strongly against a
similar change that was made in 1.1 under similar circumstances. In the
end, I think the argument that this is really a bug sort of wins out. But
I think he views it as an interface change that should wait for 2.0. I
seem to recall a few people shared his opinion when this came up.

Here is a thread I found from last November.
