	I think there should be a more formal method of informing
 developers than mass bug reports, then. I think (and I know joey
 would disagree), that the project needs to take an unified stance on
 registering documentation, and spell it out to developers. In my
 view, the policy mechanism is suited for this. Even if you disagree
 with that, you would agree that partial, haphazard series of bugs
 reports (some would call it bug terrorism) is sub optimal?
