Hmm, did I lose track of such a request?

Oh, indeed. There was so much back and forth here - I thought
hvmloader is to use this interface (and it was doing so at some
point), but that's not the case. So yes, we don't really need to
guarantee stability (but we'd need to move the definitions into
a suitable block then). Still I think the altered layout with the
union at the end is preferable (if only to reduce churn).
