You mean the clarification of "strings" in the definition.

Sorry, but I don't understand your point. How does a clarification like cause 
huge migration costs??

My proposal:

"Strings in Kolab XML are standard XML strings."

"categories (xml string, default "") - The categories is a comma separated 
list of xml strings. The separator character ',' is dissallowed in the name 
of a category."

Joon, David: There are more Kolab Clients than KDE Kontact and Outlook/Toltec 
including the upcoming webclient. E.g. I get asked by the webclient developer 
for clarifications/improvements.
