No need to remove. I'll easily mention "work in progress"

Is IBAN mainly a European thing, or more just not common in the US? I
suppose at some future point, I might add a section about some of the
main regional differences that KMM supports.
As time is running out (and I have another commitment for the next few
hours) I'm going to try to stick to stuff that is important to change -
mainly things I think will really confuse someone if it doesn't at
least make clear that it has changed in 5.0.
I figure we will have a series of releases in the next months - a
combination of bug fixes, polishing new features, and then catching up
with the manual and the translations. This is the main reason I am not
overly worried about not having the manual as complete as I would like
by freeze time - either end of day today or with a short delay if there
is anything we really want to include that is not ready quite yet.
