RE: Blueberry is not "closed" (was: Closing Blueberry)

It might help to say explicitly what most 
code slingers know:  minor version release 
numbers are typically for "fixes" releases.  No 
new features are added, but support for 
existing features is improved.  From what 
John is describing, this sounds more like 

That postpones having a major features release, 
but from the look of things, that isn't warranted 
now.  When talking to the press, a careful 
description of that sort might be better than 
saying, "we have some ideas that require a 
new version" which can easily be misinterpreted 
as a major version release.

What's going on here is not "What should go into the next version of
XML?" but rather "We have some ideas that (we think) require a new
version, unfortunately: here they are."
