Indeed!

An worst case example: in this buffer:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

(first and last line empty), M-0 beginning-of-buffer RET actually jumps
to the end of the buffer.

In large buffers, adding one rather makes a big difference to the
result.  So there doesn't seem to be so much witness in adding that
summand...
