For example, guarantee that they won't change for at least 2 years after kernel is released. That way, it'll still be possible to remove old tracepoints once they are not necessary.
Besides, tracepoint clients should by design follow kernel development. It's not like the situation with ioctls where we have ancient programs that we still need to support.
