Sorry, I need to qualify that:

There are no changes to the syntax, no new features and no other 
features removed, but there are actually *many* changes to the text. We 
used the opportunity to update the five-year-old text to the latest 
writing style. Nearly all changes are clarifications, updated references 
and other editorial changes.

But there are also previously vague definitions that were made precise, 
in particular about handling opacity (compositing semi-transparent 
elements). That means that there may exist implementations, at least in 
theory, that handle opacity differently from the new, stricter definitions.

If so, please tell us about it.
