To my mind, if the working copy clarifies something that is not clear in
the published spec, then it is perfect reasonable to implement the
working spec's version. You're not violating the published spec (since
it isn't clear anyway) and you're implementing what is likely to become
the standard.

If the working copy says something that contradicts the current spec
then that's a different story.

I'm not an expert on spec politics though, someone else may give a more
authoritative answer.
