+1 Changing the behaviour of existing APIs in a backward incompatible way is a Bad Thing (TM). IMHO, The only acceptable exception is if the API had different behaviour from the documentation to begin with (i.e. the API was broken). And I suggest rushing up a 2.6.3 (even if just a beta or rc) to discourage people from migrating to 2.6.2.
