that makes reasonable sense to me, and i would imagine something similar.

yeah, for me this is where i would rather a neutron expert respond. i
would like to agree with your reasoning as it makes good sense, and i
think this is a relatively minor issue, but i am just not fully aware
of the extent.

i don't want to make this into a bigger issue than it is, i'm just
pointing it out for greater inspection. it sounds like this is a minor
issue and most likely won't cause any security risk.
