Gramps and GEDCOM

What else is out dated?
{{out of date|as per enno on mailing list 20150707 who states "And even though there is no disclaimer on this page, it is outdated too, since there is no mention of the place hierarchy introduced in Gramps version 4.1, for which no GEDCOM data structure exists either."}}
Gramps uses [[Gramps XML]] which is considered a superior format to [[GEDCOM]] by the Gramps developers. Although Gramps should be able to import most data from GEDCOM through its GEDCOM Import module, many of the Gramps features are not supported by the GEDCOM standard and so GEDCOM Export from a Gramps Family Tree or Gramps XML is a lossy operation. This page shall list all the information that is lost on a GEDCOM export from Gramps, so that users may choose to restrain their Gramps use to those features that GEDCOM can handle. Gramps recognizes the relevance of GEDCOM and attempts to offer the best compatibility possible. The Gramps version used as a reference is Gramps Trunk, which at the time was Gramps 3.3.
