They change all the time.

No? There's many versions of the same compatible header where the header
stays the same?

You seem to only think of people only developing on their stable, not
changing distro.

People often build stuff for their distros (as distro packagers, where
this stuff *does* change - and that also compatibly because said new update
affected someting else or a specific header of even the same header but

In development times, I upgrade my unstable chroot daily (and whatever changed
in unstable changes there, too. That includes system libs/headers and compilers
