OK, that's true of course.

Oh, does that also apply to the Pi 3 and Zero W then?  I haven't yet
felt the need to overclock any of my Raspberries but it would of
course be good to know any such caveats.  From what I've read,
force_turbo=1 will disable dynamic clocking and make the Raspberry
always run on machdep.cpu.frequency.max (I guess) while force_turbo=0
will allow it to also run at slower speeds (down to frequency.min?).
At least that is how it apparently works in Linux...
