 POSIX don't invent rules and force people to follow, they document what
 actually works, so that you know what you can expect to happen.
 It isn't that anyone doesn't want the data to be useful, just that the
 implementations (or enough of them) don't use it, so pretending that
 applications can make use of it would not help anyone.
   | Would NetBSD be interested in a patch that makes the unspecified
   | result useful?  
 "unspecified" means that we can do something meaningful if something
 meaningful can be found.
 Interested might depend upon how complex the patch turns out to be, and
 how much it complicates later updates.
