It's all a matter of perspective, and you're paying attention to how
it's phrased by people who are already using IRC (the bulk of our
current community). You could just as easily phrase it as "some
projects are moving to Matrix, but taking advantage of the available
Matrix/IRC bridge so that users of the old IRC channels aren't left
behind." Technically the solution is the same one as "let's
recommend a Matrix/IRC bridge to anyone who wants to talk with
people on IRC without using IRC." The main difference is in how it's
documented and communicated.
