As Karl has suggested, client driver maintainers have opted to
workaround the issue. At gocql, when we ran into this issue, we began
a discussion thread to see if this was likely to be a client side or a
server side bug. Because we didn't get a response from the discussion,
we thought that the most pragmatic thing to do was to implement a
workaround in the client. Potentially other driver maintainers have
taken a similar course of action.

As for the unit tests, I think this issue was only reproducible when
upgrading a schema to 2.0.x - are you suggesting that there was/is
test coverage for this scenario in the server?
