Well it's never been a factor before so I'm not sure there is a policy. Is
there now a policy that WAL files like database formats are as far as possible
not going to be changed in minor versions?

This means if there's a bug fix that affects WAL records the new point release
will generally have to be patched to recognise the broken WAL records and
process them correctly rather than simply generate corrected records. That
could be quite a burden.
