That "spec" is not official. It is the interim result of a working
committee (ca.1991 I guess), which never came to completion. It is not
maintained, so there's nothing to with bug reports about it,

When there is a discrepancy between dvitype (or, more importantly, TeX)
and dvistd0.pdf, in principle dvitype/TeX should be taken as canonical.

Nevertheless, the dvitype behavior you found seems odd/wrong to me. I'm
discussing. --thanks, karl.
