SHGetSpecialFolderPathA and CSIDL_FOLDER_MASK

I've been looking at this function, and I am starting to suspect we have the 
wrong definition of CSIDL_FOLDER_MASK (currently 0x00ff). What I've been 
seeing (eg. installing MS Office 97) seems to imply that only the lower 6 
bits, rather than 8, are related to the folder, and the others are something 
else. Does anyone else think that the mask should be 0x003f?
