MOVABLE zone is certainly an important thing to keep working. And there
is still quite a lot of work on the way. But as I've said this is more
of a outlier than a norm. On the other hand movable zone is kinda hard
requirement for a lot of application and it is to be expected that
many features will be less than 100% compatible. Some usecases even
impossible. That's why I am arguing that we should have a central
document where the movable zone is documented with all the potential
problems we have encountered over time and explicitly state which
features are fully/partially incompatible.
