I still don't understand why you think this.
Could you explain what problem might arise?

Yeah, the VM interface has to be extended in a few ways for 1.5.

Also from time to time the VM interface has to be extended for new
VMs, which have different needs.  This is one reason that the
interface isn't yet stable, even for 1.4.
