You proposal only fits to WordPress running with PHP >= 5.0 and all 
installations using PHP 4 versions will not work.
If this should become anykind of common use, that 2 potential options 
have to be clarified:

    a) WordPress (Automattic) have to announce immediatly that latest 
with WP 2.9 PHP 5 will be required (mus have)
    b) we have to ensure backward compatibility with PHP 4

I know, thats not your decision and not my but in my optinion it's 
necessary to state very early that upcomming next WP versions will only 
support >= PHP 5.
