Subject: Re: [docbook] Policy on backwards incompatible changes


As someone who'd like to see DocBook move forward faster, but can't
see his professional deployment of DocBook moving from 4.4 to 5.0 any
time soon, I'm caught on both sides on this debate.

What is the community's feeling of the cause of the concern over
incompatible changes? Is it a fear of screwing up editor support?
Stylesheet support? (we control that one, so it shouldn't be an issue)
Documentation support?
