Such a strategy is proposed in order for test and private networks that implemented an updated code can easily integrate changes without any additional kickbacks and related problems.
The developers decided not to tighten with Hardforka due to the threat of a «bomb of complexity», a separate part of the code, which gradually complicates the process of forming blocks, thereby extending the time of their closure (mining).
