  We already have this implemented , so wanted to clarify about what the 
expected behavior was (and if there was any solution for this problem).
If it is going to be moved back to a JEP , will it start off in form 
which will allow change to it ? Or will it be just documenting 3921's 
behaviour as historical ?
