With regard to your point 1), you are specifying normative language - for this as defined as follows by RFC 2119:

3. SHOULD   This word, or the adjective "RECOMMENDED", mean that there
   may exist valid reasons in particular circumstances to ignore a
   particular item, but the full implications must be understood and
   carefully weighed before choosing a different course.

That means exactly the same in 3GPP and therefore any references from 3GPP carry this as a should level requirement - unless you are saying that the general 3GPP architecture provides a reason for the 3GPP specification overriding this.

It means essentially for any general purpose implementation in IETF or 3GPP that this becomes "MUST" or "shall", because the implications cannot be understood unless applied to a specific content usage.

As far as I am aware your organisation is the only one that has been supporting statements at this level.

My read of Roland's last comment was that he would not support a requirement, but I leave him to speak.
