That's way different. I get what you're trying to say, but that analogy can't even compared to 50 cal to 68 cal.
There's a lot of reasons why people are against it. One of the main reasons is because they believe it will take over paintball and make 68 cal obsolete. That would mean many things -- such as having to either purchase a new setup or buy adapters for their existing setups. Not only that, if 50 cal were to replace 68, that would mean it would also be used in tournaments. The splat on 50 cal paintballs is relatively small. That would make cheating a lot easier.
But I don't believe 50 cal will take over. I'm not against it. But if it gets to the point where 50 cal starts replacing 68 cal and more companies are focusing more on 50 cal, then we have a huge problem.
