Any big differences between final draft before C89 and actual C89 standard?

Hi,

Does anyone know if there are any meaningful differences between the
final pre-C89 draft (http://dev.unicals.com/papers/c89-draft.html) and
the actual C89 standard?

For a non-implementor, are there any traps/pitfalls in using the final
draft?
It's a shame that the C99 standard and the changes that are coming up
("safe" library functions) are implemented in different degrees by
different compilers (with no convergence in sight). Just trying to find
a "subset" of all of them, and I'm guessing the preC89 draft would be a
suitable subset.

Thanking everyone in advance.

Yes, there are.
