I believe this change is an effort to bring IDs back into the "reserved"
ranges stated in the docs.
While possible momentarily annoying, this is not the first change to
cursor IDs and is a better choice than the last one. This change
effectively corrects the out-of-range IDs introduced the last time
cursor IDs were changed (v2.5?).
Honoring reserved ID ranges benefits us all. So while some may need to
make one-time changes, just as they did the last time cursor IDs
changed, at least this time we know the cursor IDs will not conflict
with any other IDs outside of the reserved ranges.
