Actually, values in excess of AbsMax are set to Unknown.  If you have
unknaszero set then this will be displayed as zero.   Under the routers2
frontend, unknowns are displayed with a grey background.

The only way I know to make the values *clip* at AbsMax is to write a
wrapper to do the data collection for you - awkward and ugly.  Maybe this
would be a good option for Tobi to add (eg: 'Option[]: clip' to make values
clip at AbsMax rather than become Unknown?)
