I don't understand why this is controversial. In the current code, if you have a master and a single sync standby, and the master disappears and you promote the standby, now the new master is running *without a standby*. If you are willing to let the new master run without a standby, why are you not willing to let the the old one do so if it were the standby which failed in the first place?
