we are well past the time that anyone who removes either sslv2 or sslv3
can be accused of "rushing" -- if you have special use cases that enable
you to privately use custom/non-standard protocols in ways that you
think are secure, that's fine.  No one will prevent you from doing that.

But please don't encourage the use of protocols with known problems on
the public 'net, where people need to interoperate with each other over
a known-hostile network.
