Yes.  It's a conscious decision by the developers and community to get 
rid of some of the crud and old design decisions that have crept into 
the language over the last 10+ years.  The intent is to keep the 
incompatibilities to a minimum, but subject to the larger goal of 
producing a cleaner/better language unhindered by the need of absolute 
compatibility.
