I think that last point is fairly convincing. I've not read the
new material, but I didn't get further than the first line of
the new chapter file before noting a copy-and-paste error:

--- /dev/null
+++ b/doc/src/sgml/xact.sgml
@@ -0,0 +1,205 @@
+<!-- doc/src/sgml/mvcc.sgml -->

That doesn't leave me with a warm feeling that it's ready to ship.
I too vote for reverting it out of the released branches.

regards, tom lane
