I agree this is worthwhile clarifying. To me, between the lines,
this then suggests that paths are entirely unreliable, which I
don't think is what we want. So perhaps some further clarification
could be added to clarify that we're not going to arbitrarily
change paths or their meaning? Or am I mistaken in understanding
that this interface is meant to act ABI-like?
