[Fiona] Yes. But not clear yet if can be done by tomorrow.

But even if feasible, that only works around the current issue.
There is a bigger issue to be decided here - 
Should we be removing LIST_END/MAX values from all enums in 20.11?
Or defining through API comment that they should only be used as a range boundary and
NOT to size an array. And so having a fixed value is not part of the API contract.
