Should, maybe.  However, I'd strongly argue against it.  It causes
much pain and suffering.  Last time we had a real ABI change we
learned that to be safe one had to bump the revs of all the libraries
that depend on libc, which is by definition nearly all of them.
That's one reason why we played all the games with __stdoutp.
