IIUC XB-Kernel-Version, XB-Subarchitecture and XB-Installer-Menu-Item 
should be done as well. And IMO it would make sense to do all at the same 
time. But I doubt any testing of the "official" fields has been done, so 
someone will need to check *with care* that they really do work the same 

And packages that are not team-maintained will need to be done as well.

Also, the D-I Internals and possibly other documentation would need to be 

It may be better to delay until after the Squeeze release so that it can 
all be done without pressure.
