My assumption was that clients that use placeholders need to have two options or a way to adapt one into the other.

I'd prefer an approach where existing clients don't need placeholders, so this isn't a pressing problem, but that would require Firefox to change their prioritization scheme and would create some problems if Chrome wanted to replace their linked list of streams with a linked list of placeholders as you've suggested elsewhere.
