That just sidesteps the issue, since implementors are expected to 
implement before the spec if finalized, and hence would be likely to 
ship implementations that they would then have to change...  The result 
is not unlikely to be that the earlier release throws on input that the 
later release accepts.

How does that help the situation with not following the letter of the 
spec, though?
