Unfortunately the inconsistency is worse (IMHO) than "somebody" (i.e. in
charge) just decreeing that "this is how it will be" and pissing of 50%
of the people for a while.  Yes, wome people will whine for a while (50%
as the numbers seem to reveal).  But the status quo is worse in that
100% of the people are whining that it's not consistent.

I know, I know.  /me preacher.  /you choir.
