That's why I said arguably. There is a strong probability MSN is the
most used, if you have better information please show it.

But it's not the gist of my argument, as I said: it's not
MSN-specific. So it really makes no sense to don't seriously consider
something that many protocols use, specially if there's a chance it's
critical to the most used one.
