Indeed, and it sounds like this is a good topic to talk through in the sprint.

There are several inner points to the topic:

- Versioning interfaces is possible

- Extending the _same_ interfaces with optional features is possible

- Providing multiple interfaces, the general one and a custom one, is
also possible

- The grand plan of properly [1] documenting interfaces never happened

- We should avoid adding new terminology and logic to an already rich
context; conventions can solve problems
