I think it reflects the fact that different people have different ideas of what's "major"
and so some things make it into the file and others don't. I'd personally like to see everything
in there that might possibly qualify as an interesting new feature. It helps migration rates,
and gives people something to go off of when they're asked "what's new in 2.4" and aren't
intimately familiar with all the changes.

That one, I can't help you with, other than to suggest that you `svn blame` and ask the person
who wrote that line.
