what decision? what syntax? here's the release notes (7 vs. 6)

I guess you are referring to hierarchical module names?
(import List => import Data.List)

Indeed, I cannot build
on ghc-7.6.3, and I don't see how it could have worked on 7.0,
as hackage claims it did. 

(building the executables: 
when using base and haskell89, "import Prelude" is ambiguous; 
when using haskell98 only, modules like System.Exit are not available.)

I think this could be fixed in a straightforward way,
but that "fixing it" is necessary at all, just proves your point.
