I agree. The very act of adding the FW to the CMS is effectively
"versioning" the namespace, albeit we only get one shot in the
conventional matter. I do agree that moving to a published system of
public interfaces is crucial moving forward. It is best practice and
we need to drag the CMS kicking and screaming yet with as much
backward compatible support as possible.

So ok, if we can tolerate at least a bit of code bloat where we keep a
lot of the legacy code beside the new FW code, but we have a
systematic plan to reform and replace the need for that code, I'm in!
