I think we have a misunderstanding here:

No one is trying to forbid 2048 bit certificates. I described 4096 bit
certs as "best practice". So when you get a new one, I think you should
get a 4096 bit cert ;-). My original post tried to get a momentum
towards ubiquitous Forward Secrecy, a different issue.
