Wishful thinking.

In practice those other packages will happily rely on software that 
     is far from ready for general consumption, let alone documented.

Even if you depend on an 1.0.0 library, if it's not documented then you 
don't have any way of knowing what is considered internal and might 
break in the future.

Semver is a useful tool but it doesn't guarantee much on its own.
