One formalistic note about these drafts:
RFC 2142, which documents things like abuse@provider, security@provider
and so on, is an ELECTIVE standard.
This means that there's no requirement on an ISP to conform to this
standard, and it's not appropriate to say in the GRIP drafts things like
[RFC2142] states that sites (including ISPs) must maintain a mailbox
called SECURITY for network security issues.....
Rather, one could formulate it like this:
ISPs should adhere to [RFC 2142], which defines the mailbox
SECURITY for network security issues......
(note: should this be an uppercase SHOULD, since you import this
terminology in section 1.1?)
(This example is from draft-ietf-grip-isp-expectations-00.txt)
