CAL deprecation and breakage

Since CAL is now deprecated and going away soon, when exactly (and how) should CAL applications start breaking? Are the CAL libraries going to disappear and programs will fail to start? Are they just going to break compatability in some way and start subtly breaking?

With the past 2 Catalyst releases (11.8 and 11.9) it looks like my CAL applications have started producing invalid results a significant percentage of the time, particularly on R700. Is this sort of thing expected?

We are not planning on removing the CAL driver from catalyst, as OpenCL requires it, and as such no applications should break from CAL disapearing. If your application started producing incorrect results, it is a regression in our driver, so please file a report with a test application so we can get it fixed.
