All cameras, we're talking

All cameras, we're talking about all cameras, well at least the modern ones, or at the very least the ones that are supposed to have a known offset, like Canon and 2048. There must be a good reason why you chose one method over the other, right? On the 0.17 release notes you wrote "LibRaw do not rely on hardcoded black levels", well, why not? Is it because hardcoded black levels are unreliable or is it because they can't be found for all camera models? That's what I'm asking, why did you choose to do it this way and not the "it's close to 512 or 2048 so let's set it to 512 or 2048" way? I think that's a pretty fundamental question.
