The proposal doesn't do that. In fact, it is motivated by a strong desire to
avoid copying features from one spec to another.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are

own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
