Triple-click has changed in 2.9

It is probably very difficult for the Rev team to make a fundamental
change today without creating some problems for somebody. I didn't
realize the new behavior was specifically requested.
If the majority of Rev users want the current triple-click behavior,
it is fine with me - as long as I get a standard double-click.
The triple-click for changing prices was a workaround for the Rev
double-click which only selects one side of the decimal. In all of
the programs I use regularly, a double-click selects a word. If there
is a period (or any other punctuation) attached to the end of the
word, it is ignored. If there is a decimal within the word, it is
treated as part of the word - and selected with the word.
Do you see any problem with Rev behaving in the same way?
