That sounds more like a NEWS file.  And we do keep a "What's new in
%(version)?" section in the README, but we delete it with every release,
which isn't so useful if you skipped a version or two between upgrades. 
What brought about the ChangeLog was Itamar wondering "What changed in
the last three days while the commits list was borked?" which isn't a
high-level new-features-only sort of question.  That question could be
answered by asking CVS, but people have their preferences.
