Interpreting the functional safety standard isn't as simple as just looking at the document.

Ambiguity is a feature, not a bug!

Why? Partly ambiguity. Because what I think is clear, you may not think is clear. And some of this ambiguity is intentional: This is a voluntary (thought widely followed) standard, aiming to preserve flexibility for innovation and differentiation. The committees don't want to be too prescriptive, which inevitably leads to some ambiguity.
