Ok... I deserve a good slap for that one ;)
I will start thinking of it as vendor specific brokenness. But, my
reality remains the same.. the meaning depends on the NAS being
broken or not.

Unfortunately, from a back-end perspective, if having to support a
variety of 'broken' commercial vendors, one doesn't have much choice
(apart from not supporting these vendors). I guess we have to live
with it as it would probably be difficult for these vendors to change
their ways now...
