The MK option struck a nice balance for me.
If you want to use 'old' tools with new documents transform them
into current standards.

That leaves a caveat that new syntax/semantics must be capable
of being transformed 'back' into current syntax.

Far less onerous than insisting on backwards compatibility.
And a good stopgap.
