Someone appears to have had the bright idea of changing the "class"
attribute, used in so many of the XML tags, to "classes." That
little trick just broke my XLS:FO templates, thanks. Plus, it's ugly
and it isn't particularly standard: most XML I've seen uses "class"
even when there may be multiple classes assigned to that attribute.
When did this change, why did this change, for which elements has it
changed, and is it going to stay this way or will I be forever
diddling my XSL:FO to accommodate someone's idle whim?

That's because the classes are now internally stored as a list and not
as a string. What you're seeing in the XML output is the list joined
together with whitespace.

It would have been counter-intuitive to keep the 'class' name while
changing the type. The name has changed to plural for 'id', 'name',
'dupname' and 'backref' as well ('ids', ...).

Well, I don't *expect* it to change.
