Regardless, the values that the TCC variable function can actually
return ought to be distinguishable from values the underlying API can return
when it is run on a platform where TCC is unavailable.

Well, maybe I used the wrong term ("underlying API"). What I ought to
have requested was that the list enumerate only the actual range of the TCC
function %@WININFO[1], i.e., the set of values it can actually return.
Values indicating platforms where TCC will not run, if included at all,
should be distinguishable from the actual range. When one writes a program
to translate from the function's numeric value to a platform description
only the actual range is relevant.
