My general idea is that non-trivial changes should be affected, where
the definition of trivial changes includes both editorial corrections
(typos, unclarities, broken examples) and featurectomies whether
righteous or reluctant.  So the removal of with-hash-salt that I just
did on SRFI 128 would be the kind of change supported after Last Call,
whereas adding it back would not be.  More subtle changes, like removing
an argument to a procedure, would require case-by-case judgments.
