This is where I think that an interface-based approach, even if implemented with dispatcher/selectors can be useful.

So the main entry is used to acquire various "interfaces." The interfaces could be structs with function pointers in them, or they could be subdispatchers. Generalized, this can produce a useful heirarchy, where later changes only affect the readability of subsections.

Yep... and you can build on that by having all interfaces or dispatchers share a common head-end (the first X entries in the vtable or the dispatcher opcode table) allowing nice COM-style type and interface interrogation.
