Good idea.
 - Also, it would be useful to have an audit tool that highlighted use

Hmm, this will be trickier.  The import plugins will need to handle
this because obviously the 'compatible' flags would apply at that
level.  I'll keep it in mind for the 1.1 cycle.  There are some
other extras to put into that area too.
