 Replying to [comment:6 foolswisdom]:
 > The negative vote comes to having a field in the WordPress dashboard
 experience. How do you define minor? How does your audience? This seems
 like an experience to evolve on the consumption side based on the
 audiences definition not the publishers.

 To be clear, the content would be updated -- this just affects the
 timestamp for the "updated" element.  It was also suggested that this
 would be a good use of inline documentation to help people understand what
 is minor (grammar, spelling, typos) and what is not (additions, deletions,
 alterations that change meaning).

 Clients are free to implement content comparison to communicate changes to
 readers.  NetNewsWire Pro does this.
