[eclipse-pmc] Request for potentially breaking default method API addition

Hello PMC,

I'd like to add a default method in the ITextViewer interface. It can cause issues downstream as documented in the API Evolution wiki pages.
In https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=547683#c8 https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=547683#c9 https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=547683#c10 and https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=547683#c11 , I explicit the value of this API addition and give data points that hopefully annihilate the risk of breakage to make this change acceptable.

Can you please review this proposal?

Thanks in advance,
