Okay, I understand why it does so ({{template | param1 = val1 | }}), but the parameter number is "1", not "8", so the IABot does an incorrect thing anyway.

It would be better to just remove it I think.

Actually no it doesn't. Unnamed parameters count up regardless if the preceding parameters are named or not. 1 is always the first parameter. Why it's altering an unrelated template though is definitely a mystery and should be investigated.
