No, I understand the documentation.  It's just vague and the implementation is loose.

Now, the thing is, I don't really care one way or the other because I don't expect Lua to be standardized like C or something so I just accept it as it is, warts and all.  It works well enough.   I probably shouldn't have gotten involved in this conversation in the first place.  :)
