[TYPO3-english] RC2: What is the csc-default frame for?

Hi Peter,

No offence but I think thats a bit naive of an expectation perhaps. 
Every upgrade that I can think of (from 3.6 - > 3.7 -> 3.8 - etc -> to 
4.3) has involved slight changes and modification to how the rendering 
is done - from 'cset default' and 'content' in 3.6 to csc in v 4.3.

That's just the nature of the beast and tbh in my opinion they keep 
evolving in ways for the good. Granted I wasn't happy about this wrap 
around the html items either when it first happened (as we've been using 
  4.3 beta for an upgrade for sometime now) as it involved having to go 
and rewrite how it worked in one instance. But that was only the one 

Additionally there are notes as to what has changed in each instance so 
the admin can gauge if it will cause a problem. As well you can set the 
rendering mode to be a former version of csc if you want it to be.

All in all I think this is fine personally.

Just my 2cents
