And have you actually done that?

I have worked on multiple legacy products and never seen anything like that.

At a minimum I can't see it happening in any moderate to large business unless the following was true
- Dedicated high level architect (at least director level) whose job is technical not marketing. The person enforces the design.
- Same architect for a very long time. With perhaps a couple other architects trained solely by that individual.
- Very strict controls on bringing in new idioms/frameworks.
- Very likely extensive business requirements to support multiple different configurations. From the beginning. That would insure the initial design actually supports that.

What I have seen is even in a company started with a known requirement to support multiple different implementations in rapid order (about a year) new hires decided to implement their own generalized interface on top of the original design without accounting for all the known (not hypothetical) variants. Making the addition of the newer variants into a kludge of code to fit on top of what the new hires did.
