OK, see, this is exactly what we're talking about. What you say makes sense on the surface, but at the end of the day it's just a guess. There don't seem to be any substantial number of cases of this actually happening. If I were to guess
I'd say if there were, somebody somewhere would be making a big deal of it just to use it against us.
