I think you're minimizing the problem ;-)

No I definitely do not claim it's a big deal.  But it points out a flaw
in a corner of our design, and it's pretty clear what is the right fix,
so I think it's worth evaluating how hard/easy it would be to fix
it right.

Please don't then.  Other people may be motivated by these kinds of
