Since Java has been cited as an example of a language that has a
"language definition" - it is just a language reference book, either.
Sun did a number of attempts to make Java an Internation Standard, and
they withdrew when they finally understood what it means.

For Python, it would most likely mean that the only implementations
don't conform to the standard.
