The question in my view is what the plan is for ongoing development.

Will the driver get better over time, or is it likely to remain as is at 
best (or even deteriorate)?

Choice is good, but every choice adds to the maintenance burden, in 
testing against regressions if nothing else.

I think an explicit decision about the future is beneficial, whatever 
the decision may be.
