The current text is sufficient to tell resolver developers, and resolver operators, why they should even think about underscore labels when they create a QNAME minimisation strategy. Elevating such a strategy to a SHOULD as a work-around for broken middleboxes that might (hopefully!) be fixed in the future seems like a very wrong direction for the WG.
