Something similar was discussed before here:

And I'm pretty sure is that constant was present somewhere in the Window Protocols documentation, but I can't find it anymore.

So somethings has changed in the documentation and also the implementation over time.

It was also part of the discussion with Microsoft around CVE-2016-2118, but the Microsoft fixes for that CVE didn't include any change.

So I guess the changes happened after the CVE-2016-2118 changes.
