Excellent catch, but the problem you point out is not in the range of
CCID values. It means that the validity checking for SP values in
general is too restrictive: the same problem will reappear not only
for CCIDs, but for all SP features that could have values in the Confirm
list which may locally be unknown. It is also not what 6.6.8 says:
  "Note that server-priority features do not have value limitations,
   since unknown values are handled as a matter of course."

So thank you I will restrict the validity check to the confirmed value only.
