Hi list,

I'm still worrying about the "recommended" and the (mis-)interpretation
of that. I'm fine with the explanation

---------------------------------------------------------------
Note

     If an item is not marked as "Recommended", it does not
     necessarily mean that it is flawed; rather, it indicates that
     the item either has not been through the IETF consensus process,
     has limited applicability, or is intended only for specific use
     cases.
---------------------------------------------------------------

but, I feel uncomfortable considering too many decision makers will not
read that details. Though the "recommendation" is changing over the
time, I would feel more comfortable, if the N would be amended by the
Y-period.

e.g. N (was Y 2001-2015)

FMPOV, if someone reads that, it may explain, that the N is a recent one
and some use-case will still need some time to adapt for the new
recommendations.

best regards
Achim Kraus
