  If the fixes are easily automated requiring no intervention 
(other than running a tool) then i would totally push for these 
changes; Probably have a reminder notes during each release for 
people unaware of dfix that it will fix these changes to source 

  Worst case for not breaking code ultimately goes to users not 
updating the compiler.
