So with a few more interviews we seem to be getting much better info on what the relaunch means. Check these out:

I'm sure continuity nuts are still going to have a field day with it as specific participants in older events appear to never have been there - but personally as long at they keep it straight and the core character in question is keeping his or her life-changing events, I'm optimistic.
I guess some of it depends on what you view the significant events for the character. For Tim Drake I see discovering Bruce's ID, becoming Robin, his father's death, Bruce's death, and becoming Red Robin that most important pieces - Identity Crisis, Infinite Crisis, Final Crisis, joining the Titans, trying to clone Conner, and Kissing Cassie are less so to me (though others may disagree).
