So basically if I build my datastructures using SplObjectStorage logic I cannot define properly an interface for my each collection and force usage of a subtype for each of the attach/detach and add/remove methods.

For example I want to build a ProductCollection which expect working with only the same type when adding and removing and also has a boundary to only accept ProductEntity I cannot define the interface properly since the SplObjectStorage is bound to itself not to an interface.

Sure you can do it with abstract classes and define this boundaries but then each of your collection abstractions would be separated from your other interfaces and you loose polymorphic dependencies or you need to drop your architecture and care this differently.

This change should not provide any BC issues, since it's just add interface around the ObjectStorage but it will allow polymorphic interfaces and more tools to design your architecture without implementing code.

This description is very confusing to me, because I don't understand how having an interface for SplObjectStorage will help you with a ProductCollection based on SplObjectStorage. The ProductCollection will still have to satisfy that interface, which is not possible if you restrict the types of accepted objects and our LSP checks will prohibit it. Something akin to this is only possible using generics. Am I misunderstand this request?
