Right; I'm on the hook for section 3 and 5 (ACTION-107).

Section 3 basically says we don't have much to say about incompatible
versioning. I'm inclined to agree.

editorial: "sometimes a language may not want to allow it" is
anthropomorphism. perhaps "some situations do not call for it"
or refer to the language designers or the community around
a language.

I had to read the security example a couple times before
I got the logic of it, but I can't think of a way to re-word
it to be more clear.

More on section 5 separately...
