Neither. It's just unwise to do it because we may change subtly or totally, or 
even remove the class in the future. You should not rely on it existing or 
behaving like it does today. It's the same as what applies to the private 
headers that are installed and you can #include if you want.

If you want to do it, there's nothing stopping you.

But we might just change the class to spite you.
