The lawyers believe they are better off than risk the potential for law suits for filling out the wrong information. I guess the theory is “better left unsaid”. I was often told that you were better off not shoveling an icy walk than to do a crumby job.
It will be interesting to see if law is refined and or changed. This is the kind of thing that happens when government sticks its nose where it doesn't belong.
