Just to be clear - do we consider all non-prefixed-with-underscore
attributes of classes in the stdlib part of the public API, even when
they're explicitly undocumented? And while we're at it, all
non-prefixed-with-underscore methods as well?

I still consider this refactoring gratuitious at this point. The API is
well defined by the documentation. All the rest is implementation details.
