Could you elaborate on why it is important to maintain backwards
compatibility here and not for all the other new requirements in
VoiceXML 2.1? Why is it a good thing that VoiceXML 2.0 does not
gurantee support for a specific media type? Should authors use non-
standard media types like application/x-javascript as the VoiceXML
test suite does?
