OK.  It was just not logical that MAX_ID will always be 1 more then the
actual MAX_ID.

So every ID boundary check will need to be ">=" as opposed to ">" which
means we have to take care in reviews to make sure this is what is intended.

But it was just a RFC so I am not pushing this fix.  It would mean I
would have to re-touch the MC framework patches.
