I think that's a good argument for taking a "wait and see" approach to
this particular issue. I think we agreed that we could add that in a
later version of the spec.

Yes, we've had this discussion. I can see some arguments for both
approaches, but it feels like a stylistic choice to a large extent.

That seems to be the priority, let's try and focus on that at this time.
