One of the things that I did once was to streamline an implementation my receiving a number of things well, like old-style packets and lengths, but only generating one thing (like five-byte lengths) on the grounds that if you move to generating a simplified format, you can then start doing usage surveys on when to phase out the old stuff.

Yes. Last time I checked, gnupg < 2 (which is still the default on most of my systems) only generates old-style headers, whereas my implementations tend to only generate new-style. Of course, usually one wants to consume both, if creating even a fairly-complete implementation, because of gnupg.
