Is there a reason SatoshiDice & BitLotto use 0.00543210 BTC, and not 1 satoshi, to customize pay-to addresses?:

Well, what that is called is a hack. It is a hack to make the system work in a way that is wasn't meant to work. By definition, hacks aren't thought out very well and often aren't the optimum method -- if not outright flawed. But they do in many instances, fix the immediate need. In most every bet to BitLotto and SatoshiDICE there is an output address for change. These services can't know if that change was meant to be the alternate pay-to address or if it was just the change. One Satoshi would be a bad choice for this "special indicator" as that happens naturally quite often. An amount that doesn't occur very often would be an amount like "0.00543210". The frequency of change being 0.00543210 is much, much lower than it being 0.00000001 BTC. But the chance is not zero. If I have a coin with 0.25543210 BTC on it and I sent a 0.25 wager, I'll get back 0.00543210 as change. ...
