Based on RazvanN's reply to Elronnd (quoted for context):

If this change leads each of my dependencies to make breaking changes 
then its backwards compatibility certainly isn't the "no breaking 
changes" claimed by the DIP. This effect on users of third-party 
libraries should be called out in the DIP's Breaking Changes and 
Deprecations section.

(I'm replying to the original post here because my original reply 
violated Feedback rules; sorry about that).
