Summary APPLY should raise an error on excess arguments
Description At time of writing, APPLY will fill in NONE for unspecified arguments or refinements. It will also tolerate too many. So in the test suite, the following is expected to succeed:

1 == apply func [a] [a] [1 2]

As APPLY is already somewhat brittle in terms of corresponding to the order in which refinements appear in the function spec, this "laxness" only makes it worse. It likely represents a misunderstanding or error. Raising an error would be preferable.
