Regarding the count, man people want to put so much meaning into everything. There's an extremely good chance that they were slap happy at 4am and said a bad Spanish count, then later thought it was funny and left it in. (They're u2, they can do whatever they want)
I'm not saying it doesn't have meaning, just throwing out a good possibility. Also, they might now be going along with some deaper meaning after hearing it applied post rationally by other people. It happens in architecture all the time.
