It should definitely not return two values. That would make no sense at all
since there's no separating character. According to the spec it's an invalid
value, i.e. a reader error.
But why not expand on the standard? I don't see anything wrong with adding
features and extra functionality - as long as strict standard-complying code
will run the same way.
