every PHP version in the past decade (5.3, 5.4, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2) is a 
ABI breakage by definition and that's what the second number in the 
version stands for (major.minor.revision)

the same for MySQL 5.0, 5.1 and 5.5 all changed the ABI and caused mass 
rebuilds of linux distributions for every depending package

sorry but no idea how you come to that conclusion

however, the ABI change don't bother the userbase, incompatible config 
changes when the software don't know something like warnings but refuse 
to start when there is a option which is from a later release or a 
option which was removed is what brings people in trouble like one 
needed weeks to migrate every peice of configuration inclduding 
.htaccess files where you still have the same problem when you install 
Magento and did not disable .htaccess entirely
