> C3. In Section 6: s/Global Administrator field MAY contain any value/Global Administrator field may contain any value     That “MAY” is not normative, it is just expressing a fact.

The intent was to indicate to implementers that the field may be of any
value and therefore should not be constrained.  Is it not then normative?
or should that be expressed in another manner?
