Comment(by azaozz):

 I'm not sure I follow... The new API stores and retrieves widget settings
 automatically. Or do you mean it doesn't try to convert all possible old
 settings for all existing widgets?

 Before 2.8 widgets were saving their data as they see fit. It's besides
 the point to try to convert all these settings in core. When upgraded, the
 widgets can include couple of lines of code to read their own old settings
 and pass them to the new API.

 If by refactoring you mean to throw out the support for old widgets, that
 would probably happen soon after 2.9 is released to give plugin authors
 plenty of time to migrate their code.
