I agree - just pointing at the APR versioning page isn't 'enough' to satisfy
our users. I think we need a complete page that makes it very clear what our
policies are - wrt protocols, schemas, client apps, etc. Can we point at the
APR page? Sure. But, it can't be complete as APR has different goals.
