I’m all for using CIF2 over CIF1 where we can, and I favor recommending that software authors recognize and correctly handle CIF2. But as long as there exists software that we want to use but that doesn’t handle CIF2, we do need some way to deal with that. What I meant to convey in in my previous message is that I don’t think we need or want to formulate additional, centralized rules for interoperation purposes. Doing so presents a semantic problem, and it doesn’t really solve the problem of producing CIF1 data in a form that any specific program will interpret as desired.

I strongly recommend that all non-CIF2 data be transformed into CIF2 format. We have an opportunity to help with CIF1 -> CIF2 transition via CIF1 -> CIF2-JSON -> CIF2 even. The METADATA should reflect that this was done. Let's be progressive, not regressive. If need be, software can revert that to CIF1.
Is Brian McMahon listening? If so, Brian, can you chime in here?
