That had little of a real intent, and much of a 
formatted discourse—thus a kind of not fully 
accurate uttering—intended to make aware that 
untrue statements made on behalf of some entity 
worsen the image of that entity and lessen the 
overall reliability of related products. In this 
specific context, I believed that an overstating 
shortcut could have the most impact. 

It was foreseeable that the weapons used by the UTC 
would be returned against themselves at some point. 
Having said that, I still always try to overcome and 
to make the best of the existing, e.g. by providing 
a facility for input of some most useful Latin superscript 
small letters along with the other hard-to-access characters 
of the target locale.
