Yes, hopefully there will be lots of improvements. But I think everyone has
agreed that we want S compatability for the default behaviour, so if  "ts" is
not going to be the default, then the default needs to be defined. Then, for
example, we cannot have

start.default <- function (x)  start.ts(ts(x))

as it is now.
