That's certainly subject to debate, but I can tell you that the
protocol operations I wrote were designed on the way home from the IAB
NM seminar because they more directly fit the needs of what that group
of people needed with respect to functionality.  Now, the deployment
issue is always a problem.  But then again, you always have to deploy
something new to get new features so there is no way around that
regardless of what solution you pick to access something.
