That was a question I raised in the meeting. Normally it would not be OK  
in a point change (1.0 to 1.1 for instance) but a major number change  
usually means that there are some non-backwards compatibilities.

I think we can decide. The use case I foresee is to discover why a  
submission is failing, and so it is for a human.
