1st hard suggestion keep this discussion technical & less political ! (Cedrick Perrigo - anon person ?)
2nd Jeff all simpler, my IMHO
All upgrades should be done in safe way, protecting interests of most users on all version as much as possible.
All negative impacts will harm for whole ecosystem & sure price, users trust & doesn't matter separate alt-coins or single-coin.
3rd upgrading existing system, will be always someone who will not upgrade, delay or would like to support their own version,
- major role plays "economical" full-nodes who perform operations.
- SPV wallets can be fulled/misled by huge amount of non-economical full-nodes with different full-nodes rule.set
- miners majority impacting -> trx speed/hashrate
& hashrate should be high enough to protect "avg.coin-marketcap-price" from 51% attack
- users (coin owners) & biz.team - are free to choice and support any version of chains, if they not harm other chain.
- harming other chain, directly, by mistake or by negligence is equal to attacking.
same about SPV wallets, using their technical misconceptions for misleading against the will of the owners - is kinda of attacking.
different versions is okey, they is team doesn't trust they may create they own community, taking onboard all users who would like to join.
all current version improvements may happens only them huge amount of dev/users/biz agree & would like to see it.
protocol _compatibility_ should be supported by most nodes, changes should be pre-planed in safe way & and pre-agreed.
all network & ecosystem should function stabile as possible in all cases.
all instabilities will harm trust of users, business & will 100% impact price.
