Couldn't agree more. The newer rendering engines are generally better. Epub3s are becoming more prevalent for commercial distribution. The epub3 format allows you to do more, if you so desire, or you can simply make things backwards compatible for older epub2 only readers.

That is why we added epub3 generation support to Sigil while having it keep the guide and toc/ncx for backwards compatibility reasons. Creating an epub3 can now be as easy as creating an epub2 with almost no downsides and the added benefit of allowing newer devices and rendering engines.
