Actually, the point of my peroration was that it wasn’t about what anyone but the text of the spec says.

Unfortunately, when you ask a spec what it *means* by what it says, you get a look that is not precisely blank but definitely uninformative.  Texts do not interpret themselves: they have to be interpreted by human beings who are either in an authoritative position by fiat or who are guided by an interpretive tradition that everyone around them accepts.
