Subject Re: matching reference implementation exception behaviour
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2006 02:25:56 GMT

    I think we never dicide that we should follow RI rather than the spec.
The spec is the first principle we should follow. However if the spec does
not tell us the detail of an action, then it's the time to follow RI.
    That is true that RI changes from time to time in every release. :)
