I'm not trying to nitpick here, but I really don't consider this injection.
To me, the core of any injection vulnerability is that the meaning of the
query or command is changed before it gets to the interpreter. Here, the
meaning is unchanged.
I don't think I'm making an outlandish claim here, by the way. Actually,
it's almost a tautology. You can't have SQL injection in a parameterized
query because, by definition, a parameterized query doesn't allow the
attacker to change the meaning of the query.
