It's what it currently used by the Beignet/OpenCL interop (since it was the only thing which existed when that was written, and the format modifier isn't needed), and I don't want to break that.
Since it was only released a few weeks ago it will probably be a while before it lands in all distributions, and it isn't implemented at all by the Intel ex-blob driver yet.
