Valid question. Maybe we should not.

But I can tell you that the current AD who is responsible
for NM side of OPS area does uses SMICng to do serious and
strict checking. Just to try and make sure we evaluate all
errors/warnings for what they mean. So it might be good
if submitters know about what we use to review.

So is that a good enuf reason... or do you consider it to
much "marketing" for one specific product?

Another good question. I think since many people use smilint.
I think another reason is that it has a mail service for you 
to check. I know this has been around since earlu MTR days.

But it is a valid question if it should be in a RFC (once
this doc ends up as RFC).
