I think you're right about it being deliberate. Remember the recent
posts about Computer memory? Pulses vs. bytes? Well, by not defining the
absolute limits of any technology it becomes easier to adapt to
increasing scientific advances. If someone came up with viable and
common place smart gun technology in 2005, it would be insane to think
it would be changed and improved by 2060. Even with the great crash.
