We could tweak the DTD changes-v1?.dtd to provide a
high-level announcement action in changes.xml which would
then get extracted at Announcement time. One easy way
would be to provide an additional value for the "type" attribute
of the <action> element.
 types "add|remove|update|fix" ... |announce

In that way actions can be described in detail as per normal.
If the change or new feature is worthy of mention in the
Announcement, then we add another <action> entry to provide
the specific announcment text.
