It cannot be avoided.  We have actual conflicts between
API codes and official assigned protocol result codes
which requires and resolving this requires we move the
API codes.

What if we use negative API codes only in HEAD, and we dpn't release with them? It'll take a bit more to detect conflicts, but at least only beta testers would be affected (or, to state it differently) cooperation in debugging would be on a voluntary base ...)
