Can you explain the rationale for this?

My concern is that there is some software that is stuck on GPL v2 (only), and 
LGPLv2 is compatible with that, but LGPLv3 is not. Poppler is a library that 
comes to mind, where it is often linked to (L)GPLv2+ code in tools like Evince 
and Okular (amongst others), and everything reverts back to GPLv2.

Would a LGPLv3 / GPLv2 license be acceptable here?
