Because in this case, we are not talking about API revision in the usual sense.
We're talking about a more or less completely new set of APIs.
Reworking the old (err, current) WC code in terms of a new API and then trying
to reimplement it on top of that just seems to be a lot of hard work
to me. Normally, compatibility wrappers are very trivial, but I assume
these will not.
