Hmmm, it is a normal assumption that a change in the generation number 
of a product indicates back-incompatibility. This is not marketing, this 
is just version management and is consistent thru out the foundation.

What we are asking is to indicate clearly that a back incompatible 
transition is happening.

Avalon Framework has always been a product of avalon and thousands of 
users depend (indirectly) on it.

We just ask for help in making them find what they depend on and 
documentation that doesn't talk about the history of the whole thing, 
but just tells them what they need.

I fail to see why some here believe this is such an unreasonable request.
