That's not a bad thing....

The idea is that small systems can make the choice for the most
appropriate protocol for their purposes.  At the same time it provides
for the options that allow for such a choice to be made.

In the open-source software world, at least, it is silly to think that
any given platform or protocol must dominate market share.  That is
entirely counter productive in the long term.  We wouldn't even have
Unix if all the world were an IBM mainframe, let alone many of the other
wonderful things we have.

Everything doesn't have to be compatible with everything else.
