I am not sure I understand. Are you suggesting that if you want the benefit of v7 and you want formats, you're out of luck? Or are you suggesting you have to learn more boilerplate by explicitly not using "v7" but writing the boilerplate to get the benefits of v7+formats? That isn't better than what we have, so I think I've misunderstood you.
