Again: not the plugin is broken, but the host that assumes the port
signature not to change over different plugin versions.

There is no mention of such a requirement in the interface
specification, therefore the assumption is invalid and the
responsibility for potential breakage lies with the host.

It has been shown that properly designed hosts handle the port
addition just fine.

You may of course argue - not entirely unreasonably - that it is more
pragmatic for the plugin author to cater for broken hosts than to
expect them to be fixed. Do you?
