    I think this misses the point, and is somewhat redundant; I think
    everyone knows that it is easiest to never change anything. But
    then nothing improves.

    I would consider it early warning that the way things have been done
    before will go away. And I would thus write drivers in a way that
    demonstrates and includes that understanding.

    The same problem exists in hardware products needing any kind of
    longish lifetime. Deal with evolving components by having clean
    and simple interfaces, and by not relying on a particular interface
    very deep on either side of the edge. Simple I think.
