Russel, thanks.  That's interesting.

The practical issue is "how not to forget over time".  A test in a
test suite, or a hook in a setup /release script which walks the files
and warns you would be very useful for anyone who has to do this.   We
used to have a subversion commit hook once upon a time, but DVCS made
it trickier.
