I think our record of making such predictions is rather poor.

And anyway, suppose someone comes up with complaints about this
change: what exactly do we say in response?  The reason for the change
is quite weak: it's basically an enhancement required by somewhat rare
niche use cases.  How can we justify breaking someone's code on such
weak grounds?
