Again: Do you really expect anybody to change their stacks so that 
they become RFC1122-compliant in this respect???

Well, I guess that depends whether you want the specs to be useful 
for implementers, or not. I just hope that some of the kernel hackers 
that send comments off-list post something in this respect on-list.

FWIW, I guess we have to agree to disagree....

Kind regards,
