I never thought of that; excellent catch!  This feels like one of those times where I as human must simply pay attention to "drive with your brain making sense of what's right, rather than letting a GPS/computer/navigation system/driverless car software... make the decision.

(Heh, heh):  in the event of a driverless car "stuck" with these data, it will be more than its routing software that will be looping!

Seriously, this almost feels like a classic case of trying to tag too precisely, then the real world simply intervenes with a "screeching halt" exception.
