You are right! And every valid entry should be meaningful. Thanks
for the reminder.
Sometimes it is hard to balance responding directly to a list

(And for me, I get distracted by things like 0xface being a number.)
However, there are some cases that are annoying to the user when
handled upstream, such as allowing only words on a vocabulary list.
