I think people are looking for the exact wording in R5RS
that describes this:

     The escape procedure accepts the same number of arguments as the
     continuation to the original call to
     call-with-current-continuation.  Except for continuations created
     by the `call-with-values' procedure, all continuations take
     exactly one value.  The effect of passing no value or more than
     one value to continuations that were not created by
     call-with-values is unspecified.

That seems unambiguous enough to me.

I don't see why a formal WG1 interpretation of this
is needed, unless someone is proposing that we
change the wording.

Regardless, this is a very far removed tangent from
the original point, whatever that may have been.
