As a developer library, in this case, the source code and existing
behavior is the documentation :)

The point being, developers concerned with this or users who had
researched an issue with this had already compensated for the
existing behavior, and a footnote in 1.3.x is unlikely to be
noticed.  An application developer expects such changes to occur
in a minor bump, and must expect radical changes in major bumps.

Docs will be good, of the previous and new behaviors, yes.
