Actually, no.  :)

I do not remember the details, but I once tried to use the "R Language
Definition" (I presume this is what we are talking about) to support my
argument about some issue I had at that time.  It was pointed out to me
that the "R Language Definition" is a draft, hence not authoritative;
and it seems its status of being a draft has not changed since.
