Requirements of getMoreResults()/getMoreResults(int)

This is covered in 13.3.3 of the JDBC 3.0 spec and 184.108.40.206, 13.3.3 of the current JDBC spec.
The JDBC 4 made an attempt to clarify but I would have to go back and try and find the discussions and see if any additional clarification might be needed (this is the first request in 11 years :-) )
The original javadoc for getMoreResults was:
* getMoreResults moves to a Statement's next result. It returns true if
* this result is a ResultSet. getMoreResults also implicitly
* closes any current ResultSet obtained with getResultSet.
* There are no more results when (!getMoreResults() &&
* (getUpdateCount() == -1)
* @return true if the next result is a ResultSet; false if it is
* an update count or there are no more results
* @see #execute
boolean getMoreResults() throws SQLException;

Is it always getMoreResults(Statement.CLOSE_CURRENT_RESULT), or is it getMoreResults(Statement.CLOSE_CURRENT_RESULT) in a driver that does not support multiple results, and getMoreResults(Statement.CLOSE_ALL_RESULTS) in a driver that does support multiple open results?
> If the second, then I think for a driver that does not support multiple open results this distinction is unnecessary, because then closing the current result is the same as closing all results (as there is only one open result); and then the requirement to throw SQLFeatureNotSupportedException for Statement.CLOSE_ALL_RESULTS is also unnecessary.
