Hi,

sorry for the delayed answer to the comment.

The MAY is there to keep the options free to move on with the exchange 
regardless of unverifyable or missing certificate in cases where the certs are 
optional. Or in case the certificates are not for setting up a connection but 
serve as a general mechanism to communicate roles or capabilities, in which 
enforcing an error message may not be what is wanted.

However, error signaling could be RECOMMENDED instead of MAY as it would still 
allow to omit error signaling.
