IETF requires two independent implementations before approving a protocol. Something similar should be true for system calls: used by two independent applications. There's a lot of narrow thinking exposed in some system calls, and this would widen that. I've had the joy of using the TASKSTATS feature in a way not forseen by its author and until recently it wouldn't compile from user space at all since its header file was omitted.
