Actually, I am curious about why resetting the UBCs is "an incorrect 
thing to do" The reason given is that apps may be reading them and may 
not be programmed to handle the number suddenly decreasing.

So... What programs are these that are reading the UBCs? I haven't 
written any. and if I did I think it'd be great if the stats could be 
zeroed. Is the wiki page referring to some actually existing software 
which reads these stats which would be broken by a reset?

I am confused as to why it would be "incorrect" to zero the stats, and 
why such concern is made for programs which don't exist or which we're 
not using.
