Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I'm with Tab and Anne here. The spec should lead on this kind of
thing. This doesn't conflict with the goal of matching reality; it's just that
the reality we are trying to match is the one we expect the spec and all
implementations to converge on. (It can't be the present reality, since
implementations often disagree with each other.)
