Here is one reason why I think it's important (I'm not worked up about
it though :-))

Eventually, these decisions are going to have to be voted on. At that
meeting, someone will point out that the new decisions will allow a
band to ring a peal of grandsire triples that is less than 5040
changes and thus doesn't contain the extent. There will be a lot of
murmuring and discontent, and the proposal will be defeated.
