I'm not surprised it failed, it was a proposal that didn't really appeal to anyone (and I also voted for it at least to recognise I wanted to see change too). I'm not convinced it would change too...

It seems to come on a bit on this forum, I can't recall seeing it elsewhere and in almost all cases it would appear that you could be used instead.
