Is the plan that this will *stay* undefined? Or is it just a matter of
deciding whether the new behavior works (over some period of time) and then
documenting that behavior? I ask because it seems odd to take the trouble
to change the implementation and then not document it.
We have not been faced with the need to satisfy someone else's
requirements, and for this freedom we are grateful.
