I like the new text. My understanding was not hampered.

I would personally prefer the "MUST be able to originate ICMPv4"
to be a SHOULD, because you could conceivably set up your
network in such a way that you never need to send ICMPv4.
For example, if all your interfaces have the same MTU, you won't
have any reason to send ICMP Packet Too Big.
