In terms of defining specs, not there isn't a difference between those
things. Changing the language spec is not a thing to do lightly
regardless of how many implementations happen to do what you already
want. While gather evidence that the chaos your change will cause is
minimal is a good thing, it doesn't actually lower the bar for getting a
language spec change through.
Think of it this way: you are proposing to break a promise. Even if
it's only a little thing and you're fairly sure everyone will forgive
you, that's still not something you should ever want to get comfortable
