Wouldnt it be better to leave it undefined (or just illegal) until 
someone comes up with a use case where it would be useful to handle it 
in a certain way? By chosing an more or less arabitrary way of handling 
it now just for completeness, we may prevent some more useful idea which 
might be invented in the future.
