That's a frustrating  issue, however Adobe just removed tlf and as2 from
CC.   I think we can follow suite and  safely ignore backward
compatibility.   We need the player to be backwards compatible,  not the
codebase.

If a team needs more performance they are not going to be concerned with
backwards compatability in the code IMO.  But the lack of performance
options will cause them to choose another language or framework all
together.
