Well, IMO it would be failure not to document it. Why do we not add a
page with backwards incompatible breaks to
http://www.isotopicmaps.org/sam/ ?

This page already contains a lot of non-standard documents (like the
FAQ, the link to an Ontopia TM etc.).

I think it would be good to have something we can point users of XTM
1.0 to. Something more official than a mail in this list.

Best regards,
