Yes, in principle I agree, but when you are a platform, there might be a
large number of dependent apps that break if deployed on a newer version.
Peter's example of MS Windows is an excellent example, and "simple
statements" like the one you give is no longer black or white.
Unfortunately, I think River falls into this "hard" category, where many
independent versions of both platform and app may exist at the same time in
all possible combinations.

The definition of a bug is behaviour that differs from the documented or
otherwise expected behaviour.

incorrect, and I wouldn't worry too much about such breakage.
