To me the "Magic Balance" is quite simple.

I say stick to the method of change that has been done and accepted
widely by everyone, users and developers.

Throw warnings of deprecation in 1.6 and then make the full change in 1.8.

Everyone has been following that since the beginning and happily
discuss on the Users list how to go about it with no real complaining.

Why make radical changes without a phase in period?
