I think it's not *that* serious a problem.  If they've
established a convention that's working for them, I'm
not going to lose any sleep over it.  Dave Perkins asked
the right questions.  If their environment doesn't need
the kind of assurrances his (or my) proposed approaches
would provide, fine.  There's a range of possible solutions,
and some of them may (or may not) be over-engineered,
depending on their needs.
