> When run with value less than 0.0 (e.g. -1.0) works similar to 0.0, but when value is
more than 1.0 (e.g. 50.0) reducers don't start at all. Is there a reason why such values are
allowed? I understand that this is clear from the description that parameter is fraction but
some people may forget and confuse it with percents and as result have problems. Why not throw
an error in this case?
