We (the WTP PMC and Source Editing Project) wanted to be sure to communicate well to
the community that our upcoming service release will contain preliminary source editing
support for HTML5.  See bug 292415.

We wanted to announce this on this mailing list since, to some, this will appear to be a "new feature" in
a service release.  While it is admittedly a large addition, there are no new bundles, no new Eclipse
Features, nor any new or changed APIs.  From an HTML point of view, this is merely a new content model
(set of valid HTML elements and attributes) to code and validate against. So, we concluded it fit within the
bounds of a "service release".

It's still a new feature.  As prior, only HTML 4.x was supported, now HTML 5 is supported.   I think we could
argue semantics on this one if we wanted to.  Of course we could have argued semantics on the PsychoPath Processor
service release support JDK 1.4 as well, I guess.

I think it is a good thing to include, but think we really blurred what we call a feature in this case.
