FWIW, up to this point we made no distiction between how we handle published
and unpublished interfaces. Maybe now that we have had some cleaning up
published interfaces, it might be the time to reconsider making the barrier to
API break between those two more explicit[1].

Just a thought -- while I know that we (well, OpenOffice) initially
overpublished APIs, I dont know if we handled it more sensible since then, if
there is any value at all in the "published" tag again at this point.

@Stephan: Thoughts?



[1] And I dont mean "you shall never break published, but you can break the
    world in unpublished" -- but in more nuanced shades.
