Thanks for the detailed reply, Jibi! Very helpful.
BlackBerry definitely has some egg on their faces from this one, but you are right (as I pointed out in a different thread), no need to think the sky is falling.
I'm not worried that we will have the problem, but I am going to have to defend my decision on how to handle the patching given the nature of the BBC issue.
We aren't a Murphy's Law kind of place, but we definitely what I will call a LAW's law kind of place: "If anything bad can happen, no matter how unlikely, you'd better have a long list of reasons why it won't happen to us, and 2 backout plans in case you're wrong."
Makes for fun meetings.
