Yes.  You need to be able to represent -1, for 'invalid'.  Of course, you
could always use 65535 instead, but its not as easy to work with,
considering the standard for invalid checks was supposed to be "value ==
NOWHERE", or NOTHING, or NOBODY, and everyone abused the value of -1 and
did "value < 0"
