>> It doesn't say that CPEs MUST do this. It leaves that choice open, as an informational document.
> No, it doesn't say that CPE routers MUST do this, but it does go out of its way to say that CPE routers "should" do this.

While categorized as Informational, the language in I-D.ietf-v6ops-cpe-simple-security is deliberately crafted to be easily cited by other SDO's in requirement specifications, which are expecting to describe not just the CPE routers MUST do this, but HOW they will do this. I am aware of at least two other SDO's that are preparing exactly that.
which SDO's are you thinking of?
TR-124i2 references the simple security draft but does not make any recommendation that the functionality must be enabled by default. same for the basic IPv6 CE router draft.
