Not quite.

Fear not, I'm not confusing it with posh(1). That's my reading of the
dash(1) manpage:

The current version of dash is in the process of being changed to
conform with the POSIX 1003.2 and 1003.2a specifications for the
shell.
Only features designated by POSIX, plus a few Berkeley extensions, are
being incorporated into this shell.

Greg:
Yeah.  It's not meant to be a litmus test for whether your script refrains
from using any extensions.  It's not a compliance-testing tool.

It isn't indeed, that would be posh(1).
