Yeah, I'd be careful concluding too much from the format differeing.
Libraries such as Mark's can cope, and have. So it may be a
browser-specific de-facto standard of sorts. We could still do better by
leaving it unspecified, because it's browser-specific, and providing a
cross-browser, well-designed and -tested de-jure alternative. Is that a
static Error.getStack(e) method?
