Yeesh! I'm getting a strong feeling that few people in this thread have done much bidding in auctions.
Bidders are free to bid whatever they want, period.
Bids are not constrained to only nice round numbers! If you want to bid a number that has esoteric significance of some sort, you can do that.
The only thing that matters is whether someone else with deeper pockets and stronger desire will top your bid.
