xcb-icccm should be stable now, I don't think it will change anytime
Not so sure about xcb-event tho, I can't recall what was the final
decision about it, but IIRC, that my point of view was DIE DIE DIE,
except for the some #define that should be in XCB itself.

The xcb at l.fd.o archive might have an answer.
