And, the next time? Would you keep all the old files? You can also keep two of them, but how do you know which one of them was the last one written? What if one of them is half-written? That way leads to madness. Just to avoid a feature which has worked on ext3 (and probably all other popular POSIX filesystems) for decades, and which other OSs are trying to copy.
