I have heard that this is a real thing that... I don't know, lexicologists? (I just made that word up, but it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to discover that that is a real title that some people who are into this sort of thing would hold) are debating about. While it does seem kind of silly to so thoroughly obliterate a word's definition to the point of having it contradict itself outright based on the argument "Why not?", there also comes a point where it's fruitless to defend the rights of a horse that had already been beaten to death and left out to rot. At that time it's probably just a better idea to accept its death and bury it before it starts to stink up the place.
