FWIW, it seems this one didn't make to the tcpm list.

Joe, you had agreed with #2 at the meeting we had in Minneapolis. What
changed since then?

P.S.: As there is no practical difference between "points to the last
byte of urgent data" vs. "points to the byte following the last byte of
urgent data", and since all implementations do the later, it does make
sense to change the specs. You had agreed with this reasoning at MPLS.
