Bit-perfect AAC/MP3/etc decoding?, Is it an issue?

Sorry if this is easily answered elsewhere.

My question is that in a comparison of lossy-format decoders between, let's say, iTunes and Foobar and Winamp, will the output (edit: of a single source file) vary between decoding implementations?

Or is it that once a decoder follows a specified format, all output is equal assuming there are no bugs?

…in which the author claims that differences that at most represent fluctuations in the least-significant of 24-bits are the answer to the question “Why does Apollo sound so good?”. Should we be directing traffic towards such nonsense?
