The hypothetical change I was proposing would not be
backwards-incompatible, in fact, it would avoid the backward-
incompatibility that you are suggesting that I add to flymake.el.

This is of course assuming I understand "backward-incompatible"
the same way you do, as in: code and customization written by
third parties outside our control would break.

So we are probably taking about different things. But, since my
proposal is still vapourware (I haven't looked at the code yet),
there is no reason for discussing it any further right now.
