Yes you may say itīs a clean room implementation, we write from specs.

We just say to contributors to avoid doing that and trust them on keeping 
themselves straight. To this date we havenīt been formal about it.

Maybe the project coordinator, Miguel de Icaza, who is just about visiting 
the ECMA commitee, to clarify some of those issues, may answer you better, 
when he can read the list, later.
