Oh @$%#@! It happened again:(  

https://developer.tizen.org/doc.html

(click on "Tizen Web API Reference" and then on "W3C Widget Specifications" or "WAC 2.0")  

The *outdated* versions specs were copy and pasted from the W3C Website and from the WAC site to the Tizen website. 

I rest my case: Dated/Versioning is evil and wrong and leads to the above. 

I give up. I'm not publishing any more specs until this whole date thing gets addressed.
