Of course.

Ideals should not be applied blindly. They should be followed when they provide benefit.

I really, really dislike the claim that abstractions make anything better when no one can provide any evidence at all that future needs of any sort will be needed. If requirements exist, or a roadmap is known or even if someone expressed a desire for a future feature then maybe consider it. But don't do it 'just in case'.

Doing so it no better than gambling on the big wheel in a casino (one of the worst odds games in play.)

It does not insure any economic future advantage but it does guarantee complexity which future programmers must then maintain (and so must be paid for.)
