I vote for keeping it vendor specific. I access all vendor stuff within
wrappers anyway.

Yes, since there is no agreement among JDBC driver vendors on this
issue. If you use vendor specific extension, you know what you are
doing, there are no conflicts caused by different semantics, etc. If
later this issue is covered in the JDBC specification, we can easily
adapt to the change, which will not be the case if suddenly the
specification decides to define some other meaning for toString()

That is my only reasoning, but finally you (I mean the group, all
users) decide what should be in the driver.
