Domino 8 ODS - can this be true ?

Today I joined a Domino 8 server to a Domino 6 existing one and I discovered it uses the same ODS (43) as Domino 6.

If you think about it, Domino 4,5,6 have had different ODS (On Disk Structure).
Domino 6,7 and 8 are using *.nsf/*.ntf with the same ODS. This makes it way better in terms of using multiple servers versions in the same org. This makes migration easier, since a Domino 6 server won't complain "invalid on disk structure" if an admin makes a copy of a db designed with Domino 8 Designer.

So, indeed, this is true, Domino still has a lot to offer, migration process just got a little bit easier. For those of you involved 5 years ago into R4 to R5 migrations, you'll know what I mean.
