| The backwards dependency for the DTD is vital for third party apps, since 
| there's a lot of them out there who simply don't update the DTD in their 
| docs.   It's not going away, and is a hard requirement, just like binary 
| compatibility for libs are.  In fact, it's pretty much the same thing.  

I can only confirm this.

BTW: there's 4.4b1 now as well, which is (among others) a bug
"release" for 4.3 (it's actually a working draft, and I wouldn't
want to base the KDE documentation on that).  The official
specification is still 4.2.
