My opinion is that the change was more elegant than most MWS ‘fixes’, in that it was an immediate requirement (to display the PO data) but didn’t break or change the vast majority of implementations that were trying to play by the rules. You could easily make the argument that both opinions could be fundamentally correct at the same time.
