I don't understand this argument at all. This proposal is intentionally 
very specific in scope as to not open the doors for any other stuff that 
you seem to fear for some reason.

Let me try to clear something up: You're right about the change not 
having *technical* merit. I don't think anybody here is claiming that 
this change is important because of *technical* merit.
Not every proposed change needs technical merit, there's also a social 
or political perspective that should be considered, and people in this 
thread have put forward arguments on that basis.

On the other hand, the claims about technical arguments against it have 
been wildly overblown and easily discredited. Yes, there might be some 
friction, but it should be fairly minimal.

against this change for whatever reason, but staying neutral and not 
getting in the way of making this change is a position that's just as valid.
