  My opinion is that since we believe these are 'good changes' and would
  expect newer code to follow these recomendataions, 'Updates' would be
  appropriate. (Off late, we, the IETF are so caught up in just defining
  words that it is hard to take a position on anything clearly :).. my
  choice is simply based on whether I will put this into code or not...
  I have no clue how the IESG may think and it seems that it will probably
  just 'veto' one of the choices, based on their wisdom, on this anyway)

  Regards,
  Chandra.
