Fixing the alpha1 min/max under/overshoots in interFoam.C solver.

I don't know if it is meaningful, therefore I like to ask you for your opinion. When the interFoam solver is running then the min/max values for alpha1 deceeds/exceeds zero and one. My idea is it to add in alphaEqnSubCycle.H a code sequence that the alpha1 values which are out of [0,1] to set the corresponding image values, i.e.:
min: alpha1=-1.0324e-20 set to alpha1 = 0,
max: alpha1=1.0045 set to alpha1 = 1.
There are any things which are opposed to do so?

I'm no expert, but here is my two cents:
I tried doing this in a custom solver I was working on (not interFoam) but eventually decided it is a bad idea.
Very small overshoots should not really cause problems. But if there are large or persistent overshoots, it indicates something is wrong and you need to know about it. (clipping alpha1 to between 0 and 1 would mask the problem but doesn't fix it)
