Right. This is ISSUE-4 which was resolved to do it the way the spec does  
it now (after having it defined in the spec when it was Web API issue 108).

While it makes sense to describe what most things do, this seems a case  
where it might be reasonable to leave it to the spec. Although I am open  
to defining it (like other stuff) with a default of not counting  
transaction metadata/overhead, saying that specs can choose to override  
that specifically if they need to.

cheers
