I doubt that anybody can answer that right now, and not without knowing
what your extension does. There is still the visual refresh coming up,
as well as other UI changes.
I wouldn't exclude that we still take some xpcom interface changes,
dbaron has a good point to change some of the really internal ones.
From a general perspective, we won't have a string freeze until b2,
which says that pretty many UI things may still come.
On the real compat testing, I think that Michael gave a good answer,
this is just to give you some idea of how valuable QA could be already.
