>I didn't say it was a bad idea to allow users to enter a fixed PIN, I
>said it would be a bad idea to replace random PINs altogether with
>user-provided PINs.

With a legitimate concern

>That wouldn't work, a lot of devices will get out of pairing mode after
>an unsuccesful pairing.

And offers a good solution

>My solution would be to have a button at the bottom of the device
