LEt me try to understand - are we trying to identify consensus?  Or can 
we still discuss the requirements per se?

To me, the latter has its importance as well.

For example:

I would like this requirement to state that _if_ the smartphone sold by 
that operator supports IPv4 PDP-context, IPv6 PDP-context and IPv4v6 
PDP-context then the operator SHOULD support at least IPv4v6 
PDP-context, and ideally the 3 for the same APN; in all cases, the 
operator SHOULD NOT support only IPv6 PDP-Context or only IPv4 
PDP-Context per one APN.

As surprising it might seem, some operators take an approach of 
supporting only IPv6 PDP-Context on one APN, and the other two on other 
two APNs, regardless of the end-user preference; they have their 
particular reasons which may not be technical.  It is very stimulating 
in some sense (IPv6-only), or too daring for some customers which see 
their IPv6 flows interupted if switching to other APN.
