I think that this specific announcement should be evaluated carefully to
avoid a disruptive impact on the user base (although the number of Base
users is small in comparison with the global number of users, the are
people and organizations which do rely on Base for their data).

So, any "radical" deprecation of features should be evaluated not only
in technical terms, but also in marketing/communication terms. We cannot
get rid of a feature without giving users a reasonable amount of time to
migrate their data (and the fact that they are embedded in the zipped
file is not a solution for most users, who are not even aware that files
are zipped folders which include all document components).
