they're so documented.  To pretend that no such problem exists and thus
omit the documentation of it would have been less than honest.

I quote them to show that *notice* of the nature of this awkward situation
has indeed been provided.  It's a transitional thing.  That's what the
developer releases are for.  What the next step is, is unclear, and
guidance and discussion are called for.
