For the user, this is the case. You assume the
users point of view, and this is a must for commercial
applications. ;-)

But you have to agree that the interface is only 
the container and the code is the content!

As a matter of fact, the interface is one of the many 
possible ways in which users controls the underlaying 
code, so it's subject to changes anytime.

Liquids gets the shape of their container. :-)

No, it's not extreme. It's the customer expectation.

Interesting! Could you share some websites and pages 
that explains in details this approach to programming?

I still believe that many interfaces could fit one set
of code, but the same interface could NOT serve to
different sets of code...
