Yeah, migration is something we will fully nail down before we go into 
product.  The project has been moving too fast and we still have a lot 
of features to get in this year.

That being said, I did read some of your email history.  I don't think 
you should expect migration to work with snapshots from master or from 
betas and alphas though.  I know I've changed the data model multiple 
times in master prior to doing a release.
