To me it's clearly a torso and should behave as such (origin, orientation, naming...). Looks like even arms orientation remain compatible with regular torso?

Should we just silently forget the 2436c name or have it as an alias? The 28802 part submitted by Cheenzo has a better triangulation than the one I have submitted, so it should clearly be the one to use.
Whenever it's available, we use LEGO design number, so no alias. Possibly, could use 2436 as keyword...

Regarding the choice of 28802, I referred to Rebrickable where I saw that Lego used 28802 too: https://rebrickable.com/parts/28802/bracket-1-x-2-1-x-4-rounded-corners-at-bottom-square-corners-at-top/
I think having [color=#333333][size=small][font=Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]2436c as an alias makes sense.[/font][/size][/color]
No reason to apologise. Having worked with the part and compared to your version, I actually learned something.

Bricklink has their own version of 2436c.dat which ships with Studio. This is what caused me to look into this part in the first place. Their version lacks edge lines, so I strongly suggest they also use your version instead.

I got some of the Minion heads and I am working on them:

If anybody is aware of the design ID, you are welcome :-)

According to Brickset.com, they are 68986 and 69101

Thanks! I tried to find them there as well, but didn't spot them!

No, that is the number of the design/pattern. Not the shape of the part.

Aren't element IDs normally 6 digits?

Well, it depends.
Older parts that have a 4 digit partnumber get a 6 digit elementID.
A red 2x4 brick have the elementID 300121. Brick shape 3001 + lego code for red 21 = 300121
https://brickset.com/parts/300121/brick-2x4

All new parts have a 7 digit elementID.
https://brickset.com/parts/6302576/plant-w-3-2-shaft-no-3

A designID is used on both parts, printed parts and multicoloured parts.

At Brickset. Look at the Minion arm in set 75551.
https://brickset.com/parts/design-67908
All the arms have the same DesignID, 67908 even though they're all different in colour. Hence, 69708 is a partnumber.

The three different bodies have different number, even though they have the same shape.
68995, Blue overall, black feet.
69036, Hazmat suit, yellow feet.
69042, Blue pyjamas, white feet.
These numbers are not the shape. It is the number of three differently designed "pattern" on dual/tripple moulded parts.

The three different heads also have different numbers.
68968, Bob
69061, Kevin
69101, Stuart
Look at them closely, they are all dual-moulded and printed. Hence, this is not the number of the shape. It is the number of the design.

That's far more explaination than I expected but I learned something so it was beneficial. Thanks 👍
