I assume they only change as the Java API changes?  I.e. the  
interface needed for 1.4 could be different than the interface needed  
for 1.5 etc?  (and similarly, if the interface is different, it  
implies a required change on both sides of it ?)

If that's so, then I think it is reasonable to standardize - you'd  
just have the standard interface for a given Java API version...
