I am against this. I think we should standardize the format and not
how the format is used. And it remains unclear why this would be a
SHOULD or how one implements this SHOULD and in which cases one can
ignore it. Again, I do not like to mix specification of mechanisms
with the specification of policies how mechanisms are to be used.
