Neither is a "valid designation", since neither was orderable. Some
internal DEC documentation on the multiprocessor systems referred to an
11/72, some didn't.  Even for relased products there were often changes in
the designations before release. The marketing people have to appear to be
doing *something* to justify all the money they spend.
