@shirlock @bengineerd I want to delete my answer, but there are some useful comments on this thread. Could you move your comments to the other answer?

That's a good guess - it's the kind of rule-breaking that I'd expect to see.

comment How do I lower the temperature of an electric boiler in France/Europe?
Many dishwashing detergents depend on really hot water to work well. If your dishwasher can heat the water, fine, but if not, you may notice dirtier dishes if you turn down the temp.

comment How can I protect my kids' toes from this evil grating in the floor?

comment How exactly does a 3-way switch work?
To extend your answer: a 4-way switch has two connections (red + black) on each side. You can wire as many of them in a row as you want. If you keep a 4-way switch on hand, you use it as a drop-in replacement for a broken 2- or 3-way switch, by jumpering screws together.
