    That was a quick conclusion, after less than two hours :-)

    Anyway, I agree with your general concern. It only seems good
    engineering practice to also look at the numbering schemes that
    are supposed to go with the device number enlargement.

    Or, alternatively, to make sure that it's trivial to make further
    enlargements (or shrinkages), if the need for them should arise.
    I didn't look at the issue in detail, but perhaps the latter is
    the case ?
