Why we shouldn't install texvc now and then fix it

Basically, the reason is that supporting LaTeX directly
(as Axel and I want) won't be backwards compatible with current texvc;
fixing it later will break some things.
Is there anything that couldn't be fixed by a script (such as texvc
itself modified to spit out the preferred LaTeX forms) which would hunt
down and fix articles with problem math?
