I think it's reasonable to do this, now that all of the drivers are up 
to date (at least all of the public drivers).  If this breaks something
out there, it will be minor and as Jani says, easy to fix.

You might leave the interface in the CDL and make it an error if it
is ever "implemented".  That way we'd catch the problem as soon as 
possible.
