I don't think so. This is a JSON *string to be parsed;* considering its size
as part of application *binary* interface is wrong in the first place. As for
content, checking that no PCI IDs are removed is out of scope for libabigail
anyway. Technically we could fix _pmd_info size, but this still allows
breaking changes to pass the check with no benefit.
