Shouldn't step #6 included "changed" as well as "removed"? If you change the interface (for example modifying function parameters), backwards compatibility is broken too. But only "removed" is listed here.

Yes, "changed" is the same as "removed". Square blocks don't fit in round holes. Increment current and set age to 0. Changing an interface is a big deal.
