If applications are no longer designed that way, then when there's a call for Linux 3.0 for some currently unforeseable reason, there'll be a terrible chicken & egg problem, which will make the KDE4.0 saga look minor.
The X redevelopments are actually a good example for need for this, as they have NOT provided uninterrupted functionality to the end users, very many complain about much breakage, and missing features over last couple of years.
