I missed this until Allen's reply called it out. It is both false
(Google people at the TC39 meeting last week said it's a V8 bug that is
going to be fixed), and a stinky statement of anti-realpolitik. In the
current market, if we don't hew to a consensus standard, anything goes.
Not that everyone would make breaking changes, or any changes, just that
from the presence of a bug or long-standing deviation (in this case
*not* mean that "what the spec says doesn't really matter."
Or were you snarking at V8?
