Sorry if that makes it harder to read.

I am also interested to know what happens to "old data". While not
ideal, the current 1.0, 1.2 and 1.4 data format is parseable (with
some effort), and most of the time tells most of the story, but for
90% of people is simply missing a couple of cases, notably a
blind-transfer case.

If you change the format too much, everyone is going to have to

a) Rewrite all of their CDR parsers
b) Find some way to migrate historical customer data

I am all for moving forwards, but do please keep in mind that lots of
effort will need to be put into it AFTER the code is changed, so
please consider a migration path.
