Why are you being obtuse?

I've already covered that it's not necessary to know whether a type implements some interface. The only time you need to know that is when you're passing an object to a function and that's a comparatively small amount of usage compared to what the function in question will actually do.

So, most of the code that you will read is going to be code that uses an interface to do something. Exactly like the function I gave. So it is always crystal clear what capabilities are at hand.
