I will see what I can do, unless Michael D has objections.

Actually no, it's only 3.16.1 and above that has those new type codes.
However given the other changes that happened between 3.14 and 3.15 I'm
not too surprised that you would have to make changes. All of the
significant alterations should have been described in the Release Notes.
