I will be expanding this over time. If you have other unanswered
questions, do let me know.

I think the backward/forward compatibility section should state a little
more clearly that, if you do everything the default way, you won't be
able to mount ext4 partitions as ext3 (unlike the situation with
ext3/ext2; you can always mount an ext3 partition as ext2). It does
imply this, if you read it carefully enough, but we really need to whack
people over the head with it to be sure it's understood.

And I agree with that 100%. It is really best to state it with complete clarity. Many readers use English as a second language and they are already heavily challenged understanding it. I'm an advocate of writing as clearly as possible for the good of all -- we are all one community with a common goal.
