this is a moot point because the board makers make you aware of any and every limitation your chip will have by being put into a older socket. if you cant live with it then YOU buy the new board. there are many that can live without the extra "features", like during the AM2, AM2+, AM3, and AM3+ eras

Modularity of computer components is what makes building fun. I'm guessing you'd advocate binding GPUs to platforms too?
