By my count you're in the minority --- there was no one lobbying for reporting domain OIDs in the previous threads, and at least two people strongly in favor of not doing so. While I don't have a strong opinion about it myself, I don't have the interest to make the behavior configurable, unless you can get some more votes for your position.

If I understand the change correctly, won't this break existing clients that use the previous behavior (even if they don't use the 3.0 protocol)? Since few people are using 7.4, I don't expect I'll get any more votes unless things start breaking down the road (when it will be too late to change anything).

No hard feelings about it, but I'm really surprised existing behavior will be broken when the technical reasons for changing it were so weak. Did I mis-analyze the situation in the previous email? Is it not just one query to the database to get the base type compared to a lot more effort to get the domain?
