I object violently to any further editorial nit picking.
My sincere apologies all around for giving the authors of this fine
document cause to feel defensive.
It was never my intention to arouse any hostility. I simply thought
it was possible that the authors were very smart and busy people who,
in a moment of completely understandable oversight, let slip some
text that casual, less technically savvy readers might easily
misinterpret. I've had personal experience recently with exactly the
sort of mistaken impression, which I mentioned in my first message,
that I was concerned about. That experience led me to take the very
bold step of asking the authors to consider an editorial change to
prevent what I thought were misunderstandings about the IETF consensus.
I now see that the authors have not made any oversight at all. They
have very deliberately chosen to express the consensus opinion of the
IETF in this Informational RFC, and it was a mistake for me to think
it was possible that anything else might be happening.
Again, my apologies all around. I withdraw my objections.
