Such a need was created in RFC 2026 (Section 4.1.2).

RFC 6410 (which updates RFC 2026), Section 2.2, fixes this to:

   (3) There are no unused features in the specification that greatly
       increase implementation complexity.

That was only 8.5 years ago, so many people still think in RFC 2026 categories here.
