I'm wondering if it better to branch into 1.3 (or 1.2.1) AND 2.0 at this 
point, where the 1.X branch is backwards-compatible to 1.2, and the 2.0 branch 
can safely break backwards-compatibility. This is essential to support some of 
the suggested features such as "a bare-bones XLIFF core, then provide 
extension modules...". This will also give 1.2 implementers a way of safely 
updating to a stable 1.2.x rather than directly to a fluffy new 2.0.

Just a though.
