What does this 'nondestructively' mean? How generator v2 checks which parts have been hand-modified? What if the CASE logical model and hand-modifications contradict? Which change takes presedence? Can I specify that I want to keep this piece of hand-modification and replace this hand-modification with the changes implied by the new CASE model? Is the technique foolproof?

No, I don't have a manual at hand. Neither do I wish to hear any marketing vaporware - I would like to hear a precise technical answer, if possible.
