I thought about it after, as all I'm concerned with is the IM  
applications atm, I think I wasn't considering the other  
applications. For SPPS it absolutely makes sense to be a MUST but  
there are many easy to construct situations for 060 where it's  
meaningless, pretty much anything alert-based rather than current  
data-based, so a SHOULD for 060 seems fine.
