Its true, this is a general risk.  However, we do strive to maintain  
backward compatibility.  To some extent this can be impossible in  
regards to css, since fixing a bug could basically make something  
backwards incompatible.  In practice though, these types of changes  
aren't very common and where they need to exist and are difficult,  
they are generally going to be documented in release notes / porting  
guides.  We are all developing applications with Dojo as well as Dojo  
itself, so if a change would break something, then we are causing  
ourselves problems as well so there is an inherit interest in not  
making drastic changes to these things within a Major release (1.x).
