Thomas may have the best info about this.
@Thomas, do you remember why any of these decisions were made at the time?
Were you involved in any of this back then?
I know there are some things in reports which I would have done differently,

If Thomas doesn't remember, Fernando, you can reassess, make sure the test
cases cover enough of the practical cases and go with your solution.
