I disagreed with your assessment previously, and I still do now.

Let me state for the record that I cannot, and will not, endorse
any such modification to the ECMA standard unless I have a signed
permission slip from Microsoft in my hand.  DotGNU cannot afford
the legal liability should your interpretation turn out to be

He is making it available for viewing in an alternative format.
Since viewing the standard is the primary reason why it was published,
that is unlikely to raise any eyebrows.  But extracting the examples
to produce a test suite is beyond the scope of the original publication

Just because you want it to be interpreted your way doesn't make
it that way.  When dealing with MS, it is best to be paranoid.
