But doesn't the standard encourage just that, because it puts a patina of
"it's okay to do this" on a standard that's clearly not safe to do so with,
while not really dealing (at least in any of the stuff I've seen) with why
it's not really safe, at least in a way someone who isn't already familiar
with the issues would catch?
