You could add URL parameters like unspecifiedNumericPrecision=1000 and 
unspecificedNumericScale=500, but the tradeoff is how much work is it to 
add these options to the URL parsing code and then pass them around, add 
it to the datasource implementation, add it to the documentation, and ...

If there was some big important app that everyone wanted to use that blew 
up on this I'd bet we'd do it, but I haven't heard a whole lot of 
complaints about this problem.

Is this an important issue for other people?
