If we're discussing about this topic it is because of people. emails are
one people's need: as techis we could create and use any other fancy
communication means and do not bother.
So if we want to bring a new communication infrastructure for everybody
we cannot jump over the existing one, which sadly is the unsecurable email.
Thus we need to consider back-compatibility for any upgrade of the email
protocol, in order to let anyone use it as they do it now.

my 2 cents
