Some of that stuff is in there to make the security mafia happy, which 
you have to do in order to get published as an RFC (it's called 
"cross-area review"). That was part of the trade-off of standardization 
through the IETF.

Also, must-implement is different from must-deploy.

And as noted, we can attempt to fix this stuff in rfc3920bis.
