You can't really say much about "both sides", because the side whose will
the reference implementation currently follows has been absent to the
debate, at least over the past few years.

People like me can relay the gist of that side's argument, but we don't
understand it well enough to actually defend it (assuming, that is, that
the full argument can be defended...).
