I had this issue come up in a civil settlement / bankruptcy context just
a few weeks ago. There are rational (well, law driven) reasons why both
the address and the AS asset must be capable of transfer between parties
that has nothing to do with a preference for low numbers, kewl numbers
or prime numbers.
