[ML] According to what is stated in RFC7942, the "Implementation Status" 
section "... is inappropriate for inclusion in a published RFC."

Despite this, I would agree with you if that section included a client 
implementation because clients are more likely than servers to be 
publicly available as open source applications.

Definitively, I believe that the examples included in the document are 
sufficient to explain the specification.

Hope you are okay with that.

[ML] Sounds much better. I correct the phrase.
