I liked the idea of keeping everything as standard as possible, but I was also aware a couple of handful of states used 2000 as an IFR conspicuity code.... so I didn't have any strong objections if they wanted to adopt it.
One drawback is that it might not actually fix much. Those who already fly "VFR" illegally and remain on 7000 in IMC in Class E airspace would continue to do so.
If we don't take part in protecting GA access to infrastructure, the smaller aerodromes will be built over, the larger aerodromes will have exorbitant handling fees and awkward procedures, and airspace will be over-classified to Class A everywhere.
