Although the design goal was to not create a split, that doesn't mean that
there won't be one. Since you can never get 100.000% agreement, I suppose
you could say that means there must be a split - the question is just how

possible and make the code as simple and unobtrusive as possible. They
certainly accomplished a lot - getting more miner support than ever in
history, and getting segwit itself activated. With regard to the 2MB
upgrade, it does seem that many are against it. But if you look at the
node counts of SPV and full nodes, its easy to see that this group is
incredibly small - likely 0.5% or less of all deployed wallets.
On the other hand, adding "replay protection" and orphaning the SPV wallets
would clearly create a massive chain split.
