Merely mentioning that the use we are discussing is unspecified would be
an improvement. It is not clear -- not to me anyway -- from the spec
that this was meant to be unspecified.
Alternatively, choosing an interpretation would also be good. I don't
see much value in leaving this unspecified, whereas picking a
specification would provide some benefits.
