UMIL is replaced with Migrations, which we are just waiting for, and AutoMOD is replaced by just dropping in files instead of editing.

Documentation and examples are still a bit WIP because 3.1 is not ready for widespread use. Once 3.1-a1 is released, more documentation and examples will be created because we'll know the general design everything will have and it will not likely change significantly.

I have written some documentation on how to use Migrations, it is very similar to UMIL in some ways:

This is getting a little off topic, but I will respond to the above posts:

There is a 3.1 example extension here but it is not up to date. I am also working on two extensions (one and two) that can be used as more "hands on" examples. They are currently both in early developmental stages.

Furthermore, as EXreaction mentioned, there is already some documentation in the wiki about Extensions, Events, Migrations, and related components, though it is also very much a work in progress and subject to change.
I do custom MODs. PM for a quote!

That is something that should be killed in database updater for 3.1 as 3.1 has no style components. Can you file a ticket for this please?

Q: will it mean that mod authors must make their mod edit less?

The development team wants to transition from modifications to extensions. Extensions are by design editless.

It will obviously still be possible to continue writing 3.0-style modifications for 3.1. What the customization db policies for those will be, you will need to ask the mod team.
