Depends.

If one complex layer (A) is dependent on another complex layer (B) then unit testing A becomes quite a bit more difficult if B does not provide and interface.

Do you know how crazy it is to look at project that has been designed this way?


Designing general solutions based on one implementation will fail. The general solution will encapsulate all of the assumptions about the single implementation. So it achieves nothing in terms of generalization.

Even when multiple implementations are known it requires rigorous oversight to insure that someone doesn't attempt to generalize a subsection of the implementations. They end up doing the same thing - implementing based on just the subsection.
