I agree with Christoph, this change renders the MasterCard check 
redundant/useless.

Its hard to find an authoritative source defining the rules for credit card 
numbers - looks like you have to buy the standards from ISO or ANSI. The other 
validators I looked at only allow numbers starting with "4" for visa.

Leo can you point to a reference which defines the card number format for Visa 
Carte Blue?

At this point I'm for rolling back this change. The "Visa Carte Blue" situation 
can be resolved by creating a custom CreditCardType implementation and 
registering it using the addAllowedCardType(CreditCardType) method.

I'll leave this for a couple of weeks, to allow people to respond. After that, 
unless convincing arguments are made, I'll revert this change.
