This is not quite accurate. The ELF specification does contain the
CPU-specific bits for i386. But, the interpretation of the PF_R/PF_X
flags in the program header is described under the OS-specific section,
and not under the CPU-specific. That is, I am sure that the situation
shall be interpreted as the bug in the program.

Yes, sure. The inclusion of the chunk was a mistake.
