Well, it exports backend internal state that did not exist before 8.2
(ie, XID epoch).  So it doesn't seem all that set in stone to me.

That's another thing that's likely to become very much harder to change
once it's in core.  People keep threatening to produce a working
in-place-upgrade process, and once that's reality the on-disk
representation of core types is going to be hard to change.
