Did they say your rollover will be only those miles you accrue above the 125k before you hit DM or will the whole kaboodle roll over?

It's much more than pleasing people, it's giving them an incentive to spend money on DL in 2021. With status + MQM rollover, all that's missing is the MQD and all the grandfathered DM's have the...

Not really. The people who make PM and DM are the people who make PM and DM other years. It's not like status is being given willy-nilly. There is an advantage in rollover in that the miles accrued...

Those of us who can make DM again will probably do so, just to get the 2021 GUCs and whatever other perks we get (other than DM line and UG).

This move makes a whole lot of business sense: no cost...

But what about the Europeans stranded in the US who will be overstaying their visas here? Round them up? This doesn't seem very well thought out.
