It will be fair.
Users having spent a lot
of time on their chars (read: high/multi-100 Paragon) will be a higher Paragon 2.0 level;
however, in terms of the level-up pace, it will be a miniature difference assuming the item scaling remains the same (the linked drops) because the new gear would be greatly better than old.
So everybody will be more or less equal all the way up to 70. Then will the difference show up - but you can't simply null down over a whole year of progression for the sake of players who quit/gave up/didn't have time. It has never happened in any game while being appreciated afterwards, and it should never happen. Therefore I second you on the last sentence. It isn't fair and I don't see why anybody should ask for it nor demand it.
