Well no, if I had such a sample I wouldn't have to ask if we should add
a message asking for samples, would I?

Well, that was basically why I was asking if there should be a message
asking for samples.
That was just an alternative way of handling it if we don't want to do

Originally my question was if we know/want to find out how if there are
any and if yes how to handle those "seriously wrong" cases by asking
for a sample. Or if a decode error is considered enough handling.
