That is a possibility and why I did not 'fix' it - however it's not a pattern I have seen in any of the code where I work.
A better way of coding for this sort of issue is not to have unnecessary parameters but to have an 'entry point' stored procedure which then decides on which stored procedure to call.
The entry point stored procedure having all the parameters and each subsequently called stored procedure only having the parameters required.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
Yeah, one of those day. The program didn't happen to store part of the code in database and inject them dynamically, does it. That is exactly what I have to deal with recently.
Luckily I convinced the customer to rewrite the whole thing from scratch in Desktop.
The days of teenagers motivated to pick up an ax and learn a few chords is long gone. They're all playing their virtual games and strumming on their air guitars, if that even. Besides, a good guitar (or any instrument) doesn't have the built in obsolescence that the typical product nowadays.
They're also used to being kept in low- and no-stress situations. So, having to actually do something - by that I means, something real - means they might not get immediate success. Or ever achieve success at all. It's better to just make sure the earbuds fit snugly.
By buying up other companies that have little to do with your core business (the guitars) and investing in concepts that did not pan out like all of the synthesizer stuff they were doing. None of those have added anything besides debt and losses to their bottom line.
I have to admit I've never been that much of a fan of Gibsons. They are heavier than I like for gigging and if you want a cheaper equivalent, later model Epi's are just as good. My biggest problem with them, certainly for the LPs, they are prone to headstock breakage. I've lost count of the people I know who've had to end up getting their headstock repaired - there's just an inherent weakness in the neck. Of course, I am known for being a fan of super strats, Ibanez in particular, so I might be biased.
