Why would someone even suggest using these in shipping code?

Using undocumented code is sort of a black art. Or is it a gray area? Anyway, it's not pure white. It is, however, the only way to pull certain things off.

For example, if you want to use drag-and-drop in a NSOutlineView which uses NSTreeController, you have to use private API.

Is it better to omit a vital feature, or simply change your code if the underlying API every changes?
