As long as we're being pedantic, you're wrong. What you say is only true
if it is a JEDEC 1n914 that you're talking about. "1n914" cannot be
trademarked or copyrighted. A manufacturer is perfectly free to make a
device in a non-glass package and call it a 1n914, which means it _is_ a
1n914, as long as they stay away from JEDEC.
Then again, following your lead in being impractically, completely,
worthlessly pedantic, it's a JEDEC 1N914, not a 1n914. In the strict
sense, the latter cannot exist under JEDEC.
"No one cares" is probably an understatement.
