As you might have noticed in the changelog sleep mode was the problem that caused the sd card trouble on some phones. And sleep mode is directly related to battery life. So every change in sd card power management will bring back the instability issue, at least on the affected phones.
So you have to decide if you want the longest battery life which means shutting down WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G and so on and removing the sd card completely from your phone or if you want to use any of the features that all come for a price which is battery consumption
And yes, most of our phones even work flawlessly with V1.4, but that's something I can't influence and I already explained it in post #190: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=190
Or in other words: sorry, but I see no reasonable possibility to combine that for your specific device without introducing the sd card error again.
All others - ie. those who never had a sd card issue - can stick with V1.4 if the battery life is really significantly better (I can't agree on that for my phone) AND if they don't care to sacrifice stability and safety for performance and endurance.
