OK, clear.

Well, the 'MAY' says it is optional to do. "SHOULD' says: "do this,
but if you know very well what you are doing and have good reasons to
do something else, then you can do something else, but don't complain
with us if it breaks anything." "MUST" says: do this or it breaks.

In your implementation it breaks things, so I understand your request
to change this to a SHOULD. But changing it to a SHOULD would mean
that quite a lot working implementations have to be changed. So we
differ in opinion here: I consider that as a major thing.
