Eli, I will post a more detailed reply soon. But one small correction:

I'm also not sure there's currently consensus on what an incompatible

This is not correct. I did not say it was not an incompatible change.
It was indeed an incompatible wire protocol change. My argument was,
the phase of development we were in, we could not mark wire protocol
as stable and not make any incompatible change. But once 2.0.5-beta
is out, as had discussed earlier, we should not make further incompatible
changes to wire protocol.
