Umm.. remind me who chose the conflicting value and shipped product that used
it, when they knew (or should have known) that it would be in conflict?

I'd almost accept an assertion that the issue wasn't recognized as a problem,
or was believed to be a hypothetical that wouldn't happen in the real world.
But trying to deny who picked the number doesn't help the situation.
