You are right on in that we don't have (and desperately need)
a formal language specification that makes all of these things
clear.  It is a very high priority to us.  We are planning to massively
document (in full Java VM Spec-ish style) the syntax/semantics
once objects are done.

Yes, much is missing.  Our apologies.  A tool (especially a language)
is no good without good documentation.

Good ideas.  As phil mentioned, we will do a huge update to 
in the coming 2 months.  The online docs really don't contain any of 
this stuff
right now.  We will change that.
