Not really an issue in this case. First the code bails out if more than
one match is found, so unless the metadata assignment is NOT found by
it we don't get the wrong info. Also a mismatch in this special is so
extremely unlikely that honestly I don't really care about it,
especially as this is a one time conversion (might be different if I'd
have added the on the fly extraction). All together makes this pretty
much a hypothetical issue with no practical relevance.

In the beginning, there was nothing. And God said, 'Let there be
Light.' And there was still nothing, but you could see a bit better.
