I'm sorry, I have to say it...

But won't someone think of the children!  er, I mean, Kenwoods!

In fairness though, a hierarchical system like that makes perfect sense
- similar to how SNMP and LDAP OIDs are setup.  The end result is that
you don't have to know exactly what all the numbers mean, if you've got
an idea of what they mean up to a certain point; from there you can
either guess or just present it as-is.
