I did say that professionals have been consistently approving the
change with few exceptions, didn't I? That is, the very same folks it
was designed for.

What is the reason for having an argument then? Do you think that if
you push hard enough, the team will say "Okay, we are reverting this
so you could finally stop bitching and cut us a slack"?

This is not going to work. You see, the harder you push, the less
people are inclined to continue the conversation. Maybe you could stop
pushing while it's still possible to have a conversation?
