i think rawld meant what is raison d'être for a dojo 2.0 not what is dojo's more general raison d'être.  i.e. justify why there should be 2.0 and not just 1.10.

when i get around to responding that's the context i'll be responding with.

If we are trying to answer what is different in Dojo 2, then I think we would quickly degrade into features discussion.  The "why" is far more banal of a "in order to continue to be relevant, we have to break backwards compatibility, which we won't do for 1.X".  That as a raison d'être is pretty poor IMO.
