Once the file format is stable, we dont think you will want to use 1.2.2 
anymore. For my projects I will be moving to 1.3.0cvs from now on, now that I 
see most of the bugs I come across are gone. You dont see many, if any, 
closed or open apps having import filters for future versions.

If you create a doc in 1.3, why would you want to even open it in 1.2.x? Yes, 
at some point, even now, 1.2.2 can not load 1.3.0 docs, and theres no reason 
for it to be able to do so. Theres no reason to even load a 1.3.x doc in 
1.2.x, just use 1.3.x, if you want to.
