And the fact that we carefully considered this case, discussed it, and
came to a conclusion, does not comfort you? That we documented known
workarounds for this uses case even though it has never been officially
supported? It's not like we are being secretive about it or didn't
care about users who use this "feature".

Any other surprises we know about are documented in the release notes.
If there are additional ones we don't know about them and they will
hopefully be found during beta testing. If you find one, let us know :)
