But "content requirements change" isn't the same as "left things out of
their tree".  It sounds, and I haven't seen the changes, so I'm not
certain that the meaning behind a field changed.  Something like that
should change the dt version.  New fields aren't a problem.  Changing
existing fields meaning in incompatible ways is a problem.
