 So you are saing that "we try to do the wrong thing, but as that
reliably fails, only problem are the error messages from the failure
(to do the wrong thing)"?

 As hackish solutions go, I'd consider this particular way of thinking
bad. If reliability of the normal use increases -> failure happens
less reliably when it's hackishly counted on.
