--- Comment #1 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2010-09-30 19:02:02 UTC ---
The original intent was to make the algorithm essentially do the same as one
would get if one converted the object to JSON and back. That has somewhat
changed with the addition of various features over time, though, so maybe we
should indeed revisit this.

I would appreciate feedback from other implementors who have implemented this
algorithm to see whether this is something that would quickly result in
interoperable implementations, or whether this is something that would linger
on with diverging implementations for some time.

In other words: If I change this, will Opera, Gecko, and WebKit change to
match?
