For how long will this database backward compability be guaranteed? Will
this config switch affect other changes in database format? Don't open
this can of worms...

Since others also agreed that 2.4.7 is still early enough I'd prefer to
avoid another config option. But 2.4.7 should released during next two
weeks for introducing this change early enough.

IIRC in some former days database format changed frequently even within
a media release series (don't remember which one). IMO migration from
2.3.x to 2.4.7+ is a significant update with lots of changes.
slapcat/slapadd seems a reasonable migration action anyway.
