"a lot of people don't seem to grasp the difference between "GPLv2 or later" can always be used under the GPLv2, no matter how many later versions may have been published."
Only if you are talking about a standalone bit of code. If someone takes my GPLv2orlater code and incorporates it in a larger GPL3 program, then the result cannot be used under GPL2, only under GPL3. If I don't want that to happen then GPL2orlater is not an option.
