There is little in the way of validation for these requests. Anyone can simply announce ownership of a part of the code and claim it is stolen property. "Hey, I used a for loop once and that looks a lot like mine."
Ehm not so sure about your math there friend. You can't take a different base and encode it into base 2 as if it was base 10. Mathematically it is going to take the same number of bits in binary no matter what the intermediate representation. Then again maybe your just playing with us. All your base belong to us!
