If you force everyone to use 64bit sector numbers, I don't understand how you can claim "still working just fine on 32bit"?

64bit sector numbers work just fine on 32-bit machines.

At some point ext4 is probably going to be the de facto standard, which very many people want to use, because it has all the new features, which won't be ported to ext2/3. So I still don't understand, what's so wrong about a little tuning in both directions?

Just seems like wasted effort to me.
