Of course, but we break that rule.  Solder is one example, there's multiple utility classes in the implementation that are required to compile other modules.

I consider that a bug (or a work in progress, depending on how you look at it).

An API is an API. If it's an "internal API", then perhaps it should be an SPI. Under no circumstances should we be depending on implementation classes between modules. Otherwise, we are changing the definition of an implementation.
