Good question.  We didn’t feel it necessary to skip 0 and in this case a value signifying “other” or “not specified” doesn’t make sense.  The type identifies what the value means, therefore it can’t be unspecified, so an “other” should never occur. This would be like have a Record Type for variable datums that means “Other”.
