no, because these things were never released anyway.

Read the WARNING.txt file on the xml-cocoon2 CVS module.

Once we exit alpha stage, those things won't change, but now it's hard 
enough to come up with a serious design without having to back-support 
anything that gets tried out.

The reason why we don't release anything right now is *exactly* to 
prevent those issues and protect our users.

Besides, we had a vote on that change that passed and you didn't vote -1 
on it. I think it's very unfair to complain on it afterwards.
