I can give you two very good examples. Overdrive and Google. Both need ADE 2.0.1 and as other companies update their Adobe DRM server, they won't work with 1.7.2. There probably are others that don't work with 1.7.2. So why start with something broken when you can go with something that works?
But if someone uses neither OverDrive nor Google books there's no compelling reason to upgrade to 2.0.1. I vastly preferred 1.7.2 and stayed with it as long as it worked with OverDrive. 2.0.1 is slower and less stable at least in my experience.

Given my BAD experiences with ADE 3.0 at Kobo Help's insistence, I am rather loath to try moving to ADE 2.01 at this time.

It's been so long since I've used 1.7.2 that I cannot say if it is faster or not. But I can say for sure that 1.7.2 is not more stable than 2.0.1. 2.0.1 has been very stable under Windows 7, Vista, 8.1, & 10.

It crashes on me regularly when I return books.

Yeah, crashes on me regularly too under wine on FreeBSD. Still, it does the job. For example, if it crashes when I click to return a book, the book always gets returned before the crash (at least that's what has always happened to me so far.)
