There was not any intention in changing any of the actual semantics
with the binary protocol. There are a few details that changed, but
there were some particularly messy areas where breaking compatibility
would've made things a lot better.
There is some flag space reserved for something like flags that
aren't supposed to be exposed in the client APIs, but I'm having
trouble seeing the point. I'm under the impression that not a lot of
users make heavy use of the flags for anything other than content
encoding. That is, at least, where all the confusion is.
