I'd differ ... keeping the semantics unspecified (another, but less 
savory term for "generic") practically guarantees that they will either 
be unimplemented or implemented inconsistently. If we can't define the 
semantics of an operation in such a way that implementations will 
interoperate (as in "one application can run in multiple browsers"), we 
should not specify it at all.
