It is not particularly a rage for order; these few old irregular codes
complicate our processing so we just toss them (mapping to "und").
We'd like to have a canonical, syntactically-regular way to represent all
of them, even though they are obscure. Mapping to "und" or simply
rejecting them is certainly workable, but it would be nice to be able to
represent them with a regular code, one that can preserve the original
semantic. Anyone who cared could always then map them back to the old
semantics for old programs; and those old problems have no need to change
their use of, say, "i-default".
