I think you misunderstand the whole point.

Excalibur is interested in A4 and interested in A4 not changing the 
fundamental rules of what makes an Avalon component an Avalon component.

Hence the need for a clean break so that Avalon can continue to evolve 
the way it has while we can rest in the fact that A4 is not going to
change unpredictably.  Hmm.  Technical enough?
