I have patches for this, but cannot post them yet as they live on
computer currently lacking Internet connectivity.

There has been no complaints after the changes I made. Assuming this
is now ok for 2.2.0-beta1 and further tweaks for 2.2.x are so small
that there's no need for new mandatory capabilities.

When communicating with ruleset/modpack authors, I call ruleset
format frozen. Changes to ruleset format are allowed only for very
heavy reasons (fixing a bug requires it)

My implementation of startpos changes does not require capstr changes
Does offline events patch require capstr change? Ticket does not say
so, but compiler errors syntron is getting look suspicious.
Fixing bug #13465 may require changes to capstr. It's easier, and
wiser, to postpone capstr freeze in S2_2 and make it part of mandatory
capability than to make it optional capability (as is required in
