I don't believe there was any misunderstanding, but regardless: if you are
able to convince the implementors to implement something other than what
is currently specced in HTML5, I'm very happy to change the spec to
require that instead. I don't really mind how this works, I just want to
make sure the spec is clear on what is required and that the spec matches
what actually gets implemented, and ideally I would like it to not
contradict the ES specs as it unfortunately does now.
