If you don’t mind me saying, I don’t agree with that :). If you 
advertise the functionality (it’s there for quite a while already, 
right?), if it’s part of your product, even though it may change in a 
next version, for the user it’s better if it is documented… That’s 
easier than having to look in example files how it’s done.

So it may be in the manufacturer’s interest to not document experimental 
features to save manpower, which conflicts with the user’s interest that 
there is never enough documentation. But to say that ‘it makes sense’, 
nah :).

Also, if you want it to be a basis for additions to the standard, 
wouldn’t it be better to at least have documented how you have 
implemented, so that discussions can take place on something more 
concrete? (but of course you did that in this message ^_^).
