I agree that there are many potential differences in rounding behaviour among
implementations, and that it wouldn't make sense to actually require a
particular before-or-after choice.  However, recall that I'm replying in a
context where there's a fairly arbitrary choice and where different people have
said different things feel most natural; I think that matching either current
implementation behaviours (biased slightly towards whatever we consider good
implementation behaviour) might settle the question.
