I have the same issue. Would anyone know where we can get specific
details on the subject? I.e., what is going to get mounted where, in
what condition? This move, while may be documented in the release notes
as Bill pointed out, is going to confuse a plethora of users. 

I also think that this being mentioned in the release notes is not
sufficient. It's a major change and deserves more visibility really.
