Did I understand correctly, only 4.6, not 4.7? Works for me but seems a 
little unusual not applying anything to mainline.

I would suggest adding something to the audit trail of 49152. I 
understand that otherwise for this specific type of error message people 
will lean toward not printing the constants. In general, I (we) hear
