Defect Location designation when Location Type is Coordinate makes no sense

We dump out the database tables (Reviews and Defects) nightly so we can run metrics on them. In the Defects table export, the "Location" and "Location Type" should tell us where in the work product the defect/comment is referring.  If it is a Word document, this could be a pin. In the database, the location values we are seeing for a coordinate type doesn't make any sense.  A value of 86360 doesn't tell me what pin number.  In the Details page of the review, I see "Page 1 - Pin 1 [463, 883]".  Why isn't this the same information that is stored in the database table for easier human readability?
