Why would anyone use the CMIS 1.0 URL rather than the 1.1 URL?

Dear all,

In 2013 Jeff Potts <a href="http://ecmarchitect.com/archives/2013/09/15/3554">wrote</a> about the 2 CMIS URLs that are usable in Alfresco 4.2 and later:

> Which one you use depends on which version of CMIS you would like to leverage.
> If you want to use CMIS 1.0, the URL is:
> http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.0/atom
> If you would rather use CMIS 1.1, the URL is:
> http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.1/atom

My question: In a new application, is there any reason why one would prefer the CMIS 1.0 URL over the CMIS 1.1 URL?

I have read both specifications, and 1.1 appears to be backward-compatible, which means that using the CMIS 1.1 URL presents no functional disadvantage. Have I missed something?

Thanks!
