I was surprised by these two sentences in your response. I just reviewed the
meeting minutes, in which we agreed (without objection) to close the issue
without change. But there is nothing in the minutes to say that we believe that
error behavior is, in most cases, implementation specific, and I am not sure
how freely to interpret this comment. Our test suite *does* test for error
conditions.

I think the part that is implementation-dependent involves the case where more
than one error applies, in which case I believe the prevailing sentiment was
that an implementation could choose which of these errors to raise. We decided
that was not part of this issue, but a different issue which could be raised
separately.
