Perhaps the real answer is that the Report should bless the Haskell  
Platform - not any specific version of it.  It occurs to me that the  
dependency might actually go the other way:  a Haskell Platform  
release specifies which versions of the Haskell standard it complies  
with.  (Including H98.)
