I've asked to clarify the above.

There is a special thing from now until 5.0 is out where under certain
circumstances, BiC changes can happen, and should under those certain
circumstances happen in all branches targetting 5.y.z. Until 5.0 is out.
Find those certain circumstances and a howto in a relevant mail from the
chief maintainer.

Once 5.0 is out, my above sentence should apply.
