At the time that the passive side responds to a SYN request
the allocated resource, if any, might not be capable of recording
the remote peer's hint.

A statement that the passive side MAY ignore the UTO option on
a SYN is of course unneeded, since the draft is quite clear
that either side MAY ignore the UTO option on any packet.

But it might be useful to suggest that the active side
SHOULD provide the initial UTO in the first non-SYN
rather than assuming it was remembered from the SYN.
