The point about backwards compatibility is that things WORK.

There's no point in comparing things to how you _want_ them to work. The
only thing that matters for bckwards compatibility is how they work

And your suggestion would break every single installation out there. Not
"maybe a few". Every single one.

(yeah, you could find some NFS-only setup that doesn't break. Big deal).

And backwards compatibility is extremely important.
