There's a long history around that. This is consistently what Subsurface
has always done. In most cases it gets you what you want - and it prevents
you from doing things you DON'T want to do as well.

But yes, if you for some reason have random bogus data in your dives and
want to override it all - then no, that it doesn't allow you to do.
