Sorry, didn't catch the part about "once upon plugin activation".
About option nr. 3, I don't see the real benefit of explicitly

I can already envision me defining an explicit interface, then I
update the plugin and subsequently forget to update the interface.
Also, we shouldn't put our hopes up for interfaces.wordpress.org.
