Because it's not ready yet V3 is in alpha. V2 OTOH had years of
deployment behind it. It's already in extensive use, not just
within the Spirit community. I could have easily "fixed" the
non-standard type deduction protocol in V2 but decided that
breaking the interface should be done with care starting with v3.
We value backward compatibility.

clearer implementation? What makes you think so? Because of proto?
I don't agree. You can write very clear code with or without proto.
