1.  The PageStore interface hasn't changed in a very long time.  
Indeed, that's why it exists the way it does.

2.  If a new release ends up being incompatible, there's always the
option of not upgrading until the page store can be upgraded.

In short, it sounds as though you're asking *me* to do the work
(write the code, maintain it for all future versions) that you're 
unwilling/unable to do.   :-) :-)    Until there's a very large
set of people who agree that this is critically important to the
core, it's better left as a recipe.
