Alright, accidentally hit send to early again (I hit Cmd-shift-D  
instead of Cmd-Cntl-D)...

The point I'm trying to make here is that such clauses don't help us  
any- they're essentially bloat on the spec, because they can't be  
enforced, it doesn't gain us much if they are enforced and it makes  
the format more complex.
