I think we should report them as what they are, by default. IOW, this feels
like a bug fix, and as such is appropriate for all branches (with a nice big
warning about change of default behavior for released branches).

Without any context as to why we have the stripped down version, this seems
reasonable. I'd wait to hear from Wes on this one, though.

No, these are new features.

These feel like bug fixes..
