Btw. this definition does not hold WRT OSGi semantic versioning where a
breaking change in a provider type interface is still a minor version
change: "A change in the second (minor) part of the version signals that
the change is backward compatible with consumers of the API package but
not with the providers of that API." [1] page 2

Btw. technically I can argue that the change we are talking about is
indeed a provider type change that does not demand a major version
