Discussed this at the NYC interim considering three outcomes:

1) Do nothing
2) Encode LR mod 2*MaxEntries
3) Redefine Absolute Indices to wrap at 2*MaxEntries

We took a hum to gauge consensus around doing something or doing nothing, and the room was split.

I'm planning to move forward with option 2.  Please review and comment on #1763.  Note that the concepts from option 3 are not precluded and I'd be ok including text describing an implementation that wrapped all absolute indexes internally.
