Right - here I think you actually explain why you should use Dialect 3
for your _new_ databases.

D1 will get discarded/not developed further - if you don't start using
D3 now (which, btw, adheres more to the SQL standard), you'll be
left holding the bag in due time and you will be _forced_ to change your
database to D3 which might not be that easy...
