Note that this is an independent argument w.r.t. both PEPs. PEP 550 does not propose to change existing decimal APIs. It merely uses decimal to illustrate the problem, and suggests a fix using the new APIs.
Although it is true that I plan to propose to use PEP 550 to reimplement decimal APIs on top of it, and so far I haven't seen any real-world examples of code that will be broken because of that. As far as I know—and I've done some research—nobody uses decimal contexts and generators because of the associated problems. It's a chicken and egg problem.
