I agree, great article. Thanks for putting this in perspective.
I appreciate the side comment that something like this should submitted to the next version of the POSIX standard. Standards authors try to document the expectations of users and implementers, and sometimes they omit something important. It'd be hard to nail down the exact expectation, but it'd be worth it.
