Dear Wolfgang,

Have you seen this:



It is a lot of work, therefore the "crossreference manual" is not 
updated by us immediately.

However, there is a CRM-SIG decision long ago to keep the definition 
minimal because otherwise
people even more tend to regard the CRM as "too big".

Just let us know, if the crossreference manual is what you meant.
