Good point. I was really unclear in my earlier comment. Perhaps "technical debt" isn't exactly the right phrase. When I said "technical debt", I was referring to the additional maintenance cost of the wrapper and the fake(s) and the cost of the additional developer time it takes to understand the codebase fully. Maybe it's not exactly "technical debt" like a hacky workaround that you know you'll have to eventually "pay back" by fully undoing. More like a technical utility bill or a technical property tax--a long term cost that is a lot smaller than a loan but that you don't ever really get rid of.
