"Working as designed" what a copout b.s. answer. 


I think it's literally everybody's expectation that the rule tester should show you exactly what you will end up getting in the reports. And if that is somehow not Adobe's vision of it, then I strongly recommend Adobe change their vision.  


Better yet: fix your classification bug to begin with. I really can't believe it's been almost 10 years and still nobody on your end knows how to make a code update that amounts to converting to a strict comparison (e.g. php === instead of ==).
