Creating Shared Journals from existing journals?

A few months ago, I recall a change to the code that disallowed creating communities out of personal journals that have posts in them, which makes perfect sense in the general sense for a community journal. but creates a problem with creating shared journals out of existing journals with entries in them. Why should you not be able to add a user as an altposter who can post to your existing journal? Can anyone from the LJ team comment about whether as a code/design change, direct conversion from personal to shared journals without going through converting it to a community first is still being considered or not?
