Hmm, does this value count when deciding an event's uniqueness?

OK, so if I send my "not known to be good" data with table id 0x50 and 
higher (or even 0x6F just to be sure), it would be overwritten by the 
providers EPG-data when they send their (conflicting) present/following 
events (0x4E/0x4F)?
