No-one can expect an implementation that predates a REC to conform to the
REC. (Sylvain, Jonathan and others have already pointed this out.)

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in
us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our
sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned,
we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us." [1 John 1:8-10]
