  There are two very different things:
  * IT
  * coding

  IT considers wider/higher-level things like stability, quality of
the final product, documentation, usability etc. etc. IT expertise is
gained by years of doing work on IT (coding is NOT IT expertise).

  Only coders/nerds are interested in things like "making sql slightly
easier to write in some cases". Such motivation would be totally
insufficient for ANYBODY with at least a little bit of IT experience
to cause change of widely used thing (in this case water tagging
schema). Such change would be considered stupid by anybody with IT
experience. Only nerds care about where clauses having one line or two
lines without thinking about the wider picture: data consumers,
documentation, videos - stuff which is already produced, stuff which
in some cases cannot be changed (like printed books) or costs a lot to
be changed.
