However I think that if there is dissent, an incompatible change like this should not be made hastily, i.e. it will need to go through the Interp process, in which case in the fullness of time either we?ll decide not to fix it, or we?ll fix it in the first corrigendum, or something else.

Seems like a good plan to me.
