Source- and binary-compatibility rules apply only to the published API as well 
as undocumented methods that are called by inline functions or macros. 

They do not apply to private classes and internal code, whether exported or 

Note that the QPA API has been declared private for 5.0, but in general plugin 
interfaces are part of the official API.

And note that, even if the rules say you're allowed to do that, you need to 
have a good reason to do them right now.
