"can" is one thing, but can you do it in a way with that is 
undetectable? Because if users can detect it, then it is likely 
to lead to incompatibility-issues. Isn't it?

Since D has the "does it compile" feature, it will be very 
difficult to prove that the design is sound and that a package, 
that makes assumptions about V1 types, is not going to be 
affected down the road.
