It's well defined.  The current definition matches Gecko and WebKit, but 
not Trident and Presto.

Gecko would like to change its behavior to that of Trident and Presto, 
and we're suggesting that the spec should change to align with the 
now-majority behavior.  But we're trying to see whether WebKit would be 
willing to change as well, before doing that.

This was all covered in the mail that started this thread, and I thought 
it was covered clearly.  Again, see
