Since called-interactively-p has been around since Emacs 22, and the
benefit in cleanliness is rather minute, I don't think it's worth the
hassle.  We can't just remove called-interactively-p because that would
break backward compatibility, which means adding another argument to
interactive-p just means more non-useful complexity (how many people
would benefit from this anyway?).
