Yes, this is the rule to follow. In my case, the changes I referred to 
are which is an obvious 
release blocker.

Correct. This is traditional but wrong (or at least awkward). So I also 
agree we should change it. I'm unsure about doing it for 4.1.3, but at 
latest we should change this (and communicate the change) upon releasing 
4.1.3. This ensures we can consider all downstream packagers to be informed.
