... which sounds like putting in a lot of work (work which could be
better spent on other things) simply to preserve what many people have
identified as a bad habit -- a tendency to tinker with and issue too

of that effort (not having to worry about formats) could be achieved by
the much simpler method of ... just having one stable format.
