Actually, in the IESG we have the policy of treating all-caps versions of
the words exactly like defined in RFC 2119, and lowercase as "information
to the reader".
So, what Scott explained is not uncommon.
Of course, if one can choose other words for non-normative use of the terms
that is better, but, that is not always possible.
I therefore suggest using all-caps for the terms that is to be treated as
defined in 2119.
