should *NOT* create an inferior!
Set the bit!
It takes more than just setting the bit - it takes special-casing,
and in the face of translations is impossible. The problem is that
in general the 1.4 bit has random meaanings on other devices.
By a very lucky coincidence that bit is benign, and perhaps even
desirable, for PROBEF of the DSK (don't set ref date). But for other
devices, who knows what might happen? Sigh.
