in the long run, the compiler should stop distinguishing @interfaces

I've always considered this a feature. The @interface is the public
interface for an @implementation. Thus, methods that appear only in an
implementation are private to that implementation.
It will stay there as a feature unless you get rid of header files at
all and #include the whole source when using a library.
Even with Ziemowit's POV, the number of methods/variables etc. will
differ for compiling a header/source pair and for compiling some other
source including the header.
