		    I was attempting to give my own view on a reasonable
    philosophy for handling these things prior to an official clarification:

Oh, I see.  OK.

    In cases where it is obvious that most users will have a certain model
    of how an operation is going to be implemented, it is best not to go
    against that model.  

OK, I agree with this.  I think the only question is whether it's so
obvious what users are modelling or expecting.  It's certainly hard to
come up with a definitive way of resolving that.
