I had just finished reading this thread probably 30m before writing the 
email. My concern was that we weren't talking enough about whether it 
was a good idea to include Doxia at seemed to be more about 
which new version of Doxia to include. I wanted to make sure the 
question of "why upgrade at all?" was asked.

I no longer believe in progress for the sake of progress, so I wanted a 
clear answer to that question.

Is Maven the only consumer of Doxia? When you say "everything else 
moving forward" do you mean Maven plugins, or Doxia's development itself?
