While the "practical me" would say "Yes, if JDT team feels comfortable
with that", I'm leaning towards -1 for this one because it practically
means treating internals as API thus encouraging people to use them
directly instead of working close with projects they depend on to make
APIs stronger and more feature full.
I would +1 a case where the method is bringed back in Oxygen only for
the sake of preserving some compatibility.
