These vendors are not going to replace 1.6.x with 1.7.x in their
already shipping versions. 1.7.x will go into a new major release
and the work necessary to update the plug-ins for the new interface
should not be significant.
I would be more concerned about organizations that have developed their
own plug-ins that were distributed on a wide scale. I'm not aware of
any on the client side and for the KDC, updating the plug-ins when
rolling out a new KDC platform is not such a big deal either.
