I've taken a fresh look at this. To me, logic is convenience. If I try to
open my front door with my car key, it doesn't fit, and I realize that the
universe is trying to tell me something--I don't think the lock designer
should let me insert a key with the wrong shape and give me an error
message. However, your "implicitly" argument overcomes that objection:

  File | New | Illustration
  Focus any numeric input sequence and enter this:
    0 @98; 0 #1; 0
  Click the ellipsis
  Increase the age in the first row from 98 to 99

Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction.
We haven't the time to trap every possible misstep.
