[2012] Switching to BTM

The Regulations currently specify HTM as the official metric. Would there be any objections to using BTM (Block Turn Metric) instead? As far as I can tell, many cubers are now familiar with the term BTM. It's the same as HTM for 3x3x3, but it generalizes better for big cubes and other puzzles. Are there any good reasons for keeping HTM instead of BTM?

I'll be honest, I've never heard the term "BTM" before. I have an idea of what it is, but so as not to confuse anyone else, could you please clarify what it is for myself and any others out there that are unfamiliar with this metric?

BHTM sounds better than, it should at least be half turns as 1 move.
