But people are creating and persisting data now.  If they ever plan to update
that, there's a big gotcha due to an ambiguity in our specification. The
Working Group has agreed, at least twice, to fix that gotcha.

I don't think we want to publish a specification with a warning that says
"please don't persist this data, because we decided not to clarify some things
that will bite you if you do updates in the future".

And I don't think that would satisfy our requirements.
