Where would we specify these?  In the code, in the documentation, in the 
functional spec, somewhere else, all of the above?  By specify do you mean for 
informational/doc purposes, or are you referring to actual code in the 
server/client that does this "specifying"?

Does "old client" here simply mean Derby clients with Derby versions earlier 
than the server version (regardless of client-side jvm), or does it also mean 
"old clients" in the sense that you defined it in one of your other posts, namely:

- The DB2JCC client
- The 10.1 client
- A 10.2 client running on jdk1.3 (JDBC 2), jdk1.4 (JDBC 3), or jdk1.5 (JDBC 3)

(assuming the appropriate Derby and jvm versions are substituted in)?
