I am +1 to such a sentence, but I think this is a decision that more core devs should agree on. Taking into account previous history (like the linked commit) and
the fact that promising stability on such internal pieces will prevent us from making critical optimizations I assume that others will agree, but I am still important
to know that there is a consensus.

I would recommend opening such PR if you have some time and let others review it as well.
