commit 5ee5f15d9217ed76c6f97d5e1be45eb811935309

    Note that DB_MinPmt is not implemented
    Products may prescribe a minimum payment amount in order to disallow
    tiny payments (of one cent, e.g.) that aren't worth the expense of
    accepting. This makes sense for an admin system that allows home office
    staff the discretion to override such limits (although the current trend
    is to replace clerical jobs with automation). A case can be made that
    illustrations shouldn't depict any payment that actually would not be
    accepted, in order to avoid creating a false expectation.
    On the other hand, illustration systems don't allow human judgement, and
    therefore must allow either all exceptions, or none. And some exceptions
    really are reasonable. Suppose, e.g., that the lowest payment required
    to prevent lapse exceeds the guideline limit. If the product defines a
    minimum payment that's higher than the IRC 7702(f)(6) exception allows,
    then the minimum will certainly be overridden. Twenty-first-century
    insurers will need to codify such exceptions in their business rules.
    Simplistic old-style specifications are not to be taken literally.
