Thanks Henry, 

Now at least a few more things are clear to me. 
I will re-parse the spec further for the 'other details that my summary

Thanks,

in this thread.

Ignoring the mistaken Primer example, the spec. actually says exactly
what your Conclusion 3. says, but goes in to more detail wrt cases your
summary doesn't cover.
