In section "2. Conformance” Comment Annotation" there is passage:
3. Backwards Compatibility
Conformant applications are NOT REQUIRED to support XLIFF 1.2 or previous Versions.
To me, additional information related to backward compatibility would seem valuable: Information that clarifies whether XLIFF 2.0 documents are (or under certain circumstances can be) backward compatible with XLIFF 1.2 or not.
Aside: Is “backward compatibility” probably a better wording than “backwards compatibility”?
