You're defining a generic interface that may be reused in other specifications. 
  The note right at the beginning of section 2.1 says so.  So this is in fact an 
interoperability concern, if not now then the moment someone reuses this 
interface for something.

Please define the behavior of this interface for all possible valid input.

Other than this issue, I'm satisfied with the responses to my concerns about 
this section.  Thanks again!
