If so, where? Should we really allow newly added formats to treat ambiguous hashes as valid? The hash 4245af08b46fbb290222ab8a68613621d92ce78577152d712467742417ebc1153668f1c9e1ec1e152a32a9c242dc686d175e087906377f0c483c5be2cb68953e is considered as valid by raw-sha512 and more than 20 dynamic formats.
