Uh yes you're right I've misunderstood you, my apologies. Maybe I'm
behaving in a bit too defensive way here, sorry.

I would be ok with any text explaining the impact of the PLIP in the
way we develop with, customize, or manage Plone. Links to existing
documentation that would become obsolete could be optional.

Some trivial examples:

- http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/238
Inline editing will be disabled by default. Update User Manual
http://is.gd/7El5 .

- http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/223
Theming resources based on base_properties.props will become
deprecated in favour of zrt resources.
