Certainly distinguishing between Required changes and Recommended changes
would be a good thing. Required changes are what needs to be done to keep
old code working. Recommended changes could include stylistic changes, new
features, new idioms, etc. I think it would even make sense to talk about
changes that should be made in anticipation of future feature deprecation.
