Do you mean
The issues document should probably mention this, because it's
an issue in the sense that it has to be duely considered and
checked of, but for everybody who has looked even a bit into
this issue will understand that it's a non-issue, in the sense
that applications should just upgrade to the new, correct
version of normalization without any problems.
