 There are quite a few installs out there already. :-)

 Our existing database schema API doesn't really allow the flexibility of
 doing this for new installs only, without touching existing installs.
 (Which is something that would be easier to swallow.)

 I do know it took them about 3 weeks on WP.com to add the commentmeta
 tables. I don't expect them to ever merge over a change like this one, so
 it's irrelevant to them, but it's still something to consider. I'm not
 familiar with the performance aspects here. Someone like ryan who was
 around during previous schema changes could talk about it a bit more.
