Now looked a little deeper into this issue and suggest the following 

When the new Cas Editor 2.3.2 is started up the first time,
it does the following to migrate a project:

1. Reads the dotCorpus file and sets the type system location for the 
2. Copies the dotCorpus to the new default styling file location

After these two steps a user will be able to open any .xcas or .xmi file 
the migrated project with the configured styling. The functionality to 
run an
AE will be removed from the Cas Editor and we will instruct our users to use
the new eclipse AE launch support instead.

What that be a graceful migration?
