I wonder if an "at most two" protocol restriction could work.

Probably not though, even if we designed protocols with a 1
or 2 bit algorithm id field I bet implementers on the receiver
side would still try out old stuff to see if it works even
after we'd all agreed to deprecate the last-but-one old/crap
