does it matter if it is caused by hardware?

Wouldn't this be easy to detect in firmware and patch over, similar to dust?

It appears to me that DPP is detecting and hiding these. This would mean that Canon does know about the problem and put special code in DPP. The few left over after DPP are ones that were failed to be detected by whatever algorithm DPP was using.

It is possible this was discovered late in the development and so far they only had the time to fix in DPP. Let's hope there is sufficient room for the fix in firmware.
