Perhaps I wasn't being clear.  I'm not trying to say that cf2 supports
cf3 language updates.  I'm trying to say that the v2 and v3
client/servers can interoperate.  Here's a quote from the
documentation:
"The daemons and support services are fully interoperable between
cfengine 2 and cfengine 3, so it does not matter whether you run
cfservd (cf2) together with cf-agent (cf3) or cf-serverd (cf3)
together with cfagent (cf2). You can change the servers at your own
pace."
