My understanding is that this is the intent.  A normative reference makes roughly the same amount of sense in the other direction (i.e. Perhaps none, depending on your point of view), but that we have pre-discussed with the -404 team this potential approach for moving forward.

Our ECMA liaison might want to speak more formally to this point.
