I don't think so.  It has no bearing on Promises/A+, because A+ doesn't
test the case where the promise's value is itself a promise.  Or to put it
another way, in A+ `then` will never give you a promise.

I've made the change to my prototype and it still passes A+ (as well as
passing that gist I linked to).
