At least with the mods there is always good old 67's to fall back to and there are still many servers running the original game. However if these all move to 60fps even the original game will not be available online unless you have a good spec machine.
Falling back to 67 is similar to falling back to 36 fps: it works if there are enough people falling back with you. Mods are different only in the sense that 67 is still preferred by many. If there were a "killer mod", consistently improving the 67 in all aspects, the situation would be different.
I would trust those hosting online races to know what they are doing. Mybroga seems to run just a test server, presumably to find out if all the members are happy with the performance. Every other league which is considering the 60fps seems to be doing the same. The league I'm in does not even consider it
The online split is inevitable, but many people have found that online 60fps is quite demanding so there is no need to worry that most servers would be 60fps anytime soon. As long as there is demand, there will be 36 fps servers around.
