Thanks for the explanation. I just assumed they had to match, based on
my limited understanding of tokens and metadata. Now that I understand
how it works, I certainly agree with you that one shouldn't depend on
any relation between runtime and persisted token values given the
metadata layout.

Hopefully this won't happen, but then again, someone else might make the
same wrong assumption I did.
