Trainwreck or not, VST3 is the future. Yes, VST2 will be supported for a long time to come by most DAWs. But Steinberg defines the VST spec and they have clearly indicated that VST3 is the future of the standard.

Also, there may have been legitimate technical reasons why Roland adopted VST3 over VST2.

Or maybe Roland just wanted to future-proof their development efforts. I'm sure that's the same reason why Roland isn't releasing a 32 bit version of the Integra editor. 32 bit is last century's technology.
