as was repeated many times in the wg, a non-trivial number of the
'actions' in this document are normal operational practice, not
actions by an attacker directed at a victim.  the use of "adverse"
misleads the reader and can cause folk to be told their practice
is incorrect or an attack when it is not, or cause the document to
be written off in its entirety by the ops community.

that's a "no," by the way.
