Well, since any existing code probably expects that behavior (or at least probably works if that is the case), I would be for such a change. I'm not sure what your policy is though. If there is recently written code that assumes the new types, are you OK with that breaking if it is changed back?

I guess since it's an undocumented breaking change, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.
