This is great. Thanks Fil.

I propose that we do all that we can to keep this updated.
I suggest that all patches that change to the IR should also include with it 
a change to the documentation, and that reviewers should require this.

It’d also be great if other significant changes that seem like the deserve
a mention in the documentation also get added as part of patches.
