DB-API 1.0 vs. 2.0

DB-API 1.0 (dated April 9, 1996) specifies that a connection object
should provide "all Cursor Object attributes and methods".

this requirement seems to have been dropped in the (undated)
DB-API 2.0 specification -- but this fairly major change isn't listed
under "Major Changes from Version 1.0 to Version 2.0"...

what's the deal here?  should a 2.0 implementation provide an
implicit cursor, or not?

(btw, maybe the people involved could add a release date to the
2.0 specification?)

Thanks /F
