Thanks for the answers. You're absolutely right that this is highly 
unlikely to be correct. I inherited the code in question and I'm 
inclined this behavior now.

I can understand why the datum shift change 
was made; the old behavior was  basically the same as adding 
towgs84=0,0,0. It's rather surprising then though that gdalwarp (and 
cs2cs) don't complain in these cases. I would expect the tools to refuse 
this type of input since you're asking them to do transformations that 
they cannot perform correctly.
