Because currently they can call thing-at-point without defining
foo-at-point.  AFAIU, you suggest to deny them this possibility, and
force them to define foo-at-point for every foo.

They'll really have to do that only for string-unrepresentable foos.

Like currently (thing-at-point 'symbol) returns a string, whereas (symbol-at-point) returns an interned symbol. That's nothing new.
