If the fix is easily bypassed wouldn't you want to know that sooner, rather
than later? Besides, this method pretty much clearly isolates the fix and
draws attention to it, doesn't it?

Oh.. by "Head Start" do you mean at attacking blogs that haven't updated?
If that's what you mean, I guess that does have some logic to it...
