You only changed it to be in decimal, you did not change the id at all.
Is there some reason why you can not change it?  You said there was a
reserved range of ids that could be used, perhaps just pick another one?
What is the valid range that can be used here?

I'm sure all of Microsoft's non-open-source software is full of stuff like that and snarky comments...

So I encourage discussion of options, just don't be scared that something drastic and sudden will happen. We all have time to measure this out.

Regarding the discussions around next steps - these will be a time in the next couple weeks to review options and start making some action, but it isn't this week. There's no present emergency, so this time is being used to review potential avenues.
