What? No it wouldn't. The current text is correct. What testcases are you 
talking about? Like David said, please demonstrate your case with the many 
hundreds of test cases it would take to prove your case before trying to 
change the spec here.

So? Even if this were true, let's at least give the implementations a 
chance to fix their code to match the spec before we start changing the 
spec. If we keep moving the goal posts, browser vendors are going to stop 
paying attention to us. Can we please leave this alone for several more 
years before we start changing everything again?
