As far as I understand the PCI spec, the answer to your question seems to
be: no
(or I'm missing something).

Don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about system IRQs, but about the value
of the Interrupt Pin Register in PCI configuration space.

The PCI Local Bus Specification in Revision 3.0 from 3rd February 2004
says on page 223 about the content of Interrupt Pin register:

Value 0x00: _No_ interrupt
Values 0x01 to 0x04: Interrupt lines A to D
And values 5 to 0xFF are reserved.

So I'd say, the "correction" of greater values than four to a value of one
seems discussable, too. Because it will break any future changes of the
PCI spec.
