I guess my main point is, being a 'may' clause an application
does not have to follow that clause (if it implements it)

I'll note this in the issues list.
  It probably doesn't need to be resolved by this group, but it does
by the TC.
  They need to define the pass fail conditions wrt the standard definitions.
