It's good we have a plan (elsewhere in the thread) to get things
smooth again, but we should also see if we can articulate something
along the lines of "design goals" so that this kind of thing is
decreasingly common.

We've become relatively good at identifying when the problem exists:
If you find yourself justifying some cruft on side A for behavior on
side B we know that's a problem for other users of B. What we're less
good at is evolving B quickly enough such that A doesn't have to
compensate. There's likely no easy solution that also accounts for
