I'd consider such code as "internal", so yes it would probably need to
be updated.  This said, I don't think set-window-configuration should be
changed to always create new window identities.  E.g. in the case of
save-window-excursion, for example, new identities would only be created
for windows that had been deleted in the mean time.

Yes, and the "c" is for "creative".
