Ok. SO I COULD use that to transfer my database from 2.17 back to 2.16 if I
had to? I don't plan to at this time. But I needed to be able to answer the
question when asked.

The externally visible field names remained the same in most places, just
the way they're represented in the database is different.  So the XML
transfer should still work.  In the case of new fields, whichever one
doesn't recognize them will just list the unrecognized ones in the comment
