Yes.  I guess what I'm saying is that this is IMO a deficiency.
Obviously there's no need for you to rectify this right now but we
should leave space to extend the API in case we decide to fix it

Right.  One of the reasons I'm asking these questions is that because
your document described all the layers at once, I wasn't sure which
