Has bash ever had a change before that would break valid scripts?

Yes, but I try to keep those to a minimum.

Could the printf format change be settable by a variable or by an option like the -e/-E in echo?

It could, sure. Anything is possible.

Is it necessary for bash printf to match C printf?

No. That's the heart of it.

I suppose that it is already decided.

The austin group has decided what they'd like to do, and what they'd like
implementors to do. The question is whether or not people go along with it.
