I would prefer that early users placed a \tempo 4 = 60 in their score block, which is easier to understand, works in MIDI, and permits dotted notes to be used

Early users would think in terms of dotted notes and write
\tempo 4. = 60

But no, no. You had to write
\tempo 4 .= 60
which - is not easy to understand - is easy to forget - has an easily overseen dot (because the 4 is obviously not dotted)
```
Something easy would have to let you say "4." like for dotted notes.
