Ok, I'll bite: What are the costs of keeping V1 compatibility?
Let's assume cutting out V1 brings X% performance gain (and I understand that X is low and I repeat again, I'm not argueing for the case, I'm argueing against a No based on 2012 hardware without further arguments).
Keeping V1 compatiblity for the sake of it means dropping X% performance gain for everyone so that Mathias can keep using his old MicroServer (that is not even running Tumbleweed). That is a cost to me.
Now my expectation is that someone somewhere will identify specific packages that make a reasonable difference if provided with different hwcaps and then we should do that. Just as we offer a glibc.i686 but still have a i586 distro.
