Of course, I do not agree with this view, I think that pointing to the
*new* features is helpful  + harmless.
Moreover, if you check the record, if I remember correctly, Jie was
asked earlier at a telecon to put these links in the QRG.
Also in fact, Jie sent me comments on the NF&R last week before I took
an action asking to add some missing features in NF&R so as to allow
to point to them. I have now precisely finished to add them.
