> For example, Objects/longobject.c defines "PyTypeObject PyLong_Type = {...};". This type is exposed in the limited C API (!)

Technically, it is not, see https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0384/#structures
Structures like PyLong_Type are *not* part of the limited API.

> I propose to break the limited C API backward compatibility on purpose by removing these type definitions form the limited C API.

That could only be done in Python 4.0, or if we started C-API 4.0. But I don't think it's necessary here.
