You will be isolating a whole lot of existing users by forcing a new 
paradigm on them before they are ready. Just look at Facebook for a good 
example of how this doesn't work.

I think jack devs have to put the effort into making the transition to a 
more flexible system as subtle as possible rather than smacking people 
round the head with it.
