I was going to ask about that, whether we can have a successful I2C read
operation that would return incorrect data. If we do, aren't we screwed
? If there's a non-negligible probability that reads will return
incorrect data without any way to know about it (for other registers
than the version register of course), then I would consider that writes
could fail the same way, and that would mean an unusable device,
wouldn't it ?

If, on the other hand, read failures can always (or nearly always,
ignoring space neutrinos and similar niceties) be detected, then I think
we should avoid the functional change.
