As an implementor reading specs, a spec remaining silent on an issue is 
the worst that I can get because I have no idea[1] whether the editors 
and the working group have even considered the issue. I’d much rather 
have something explicitly marked undefined.

[1] Unless of course I was there when it was discussed, but this kind of 
insider knowledge should not be required.
