Insert in the Introduction, before or at the beginning of "Notes:"
This memo uses the terms "MUST", "REQUIRED", "SHOULD", and
"RECOMMENDED", similarly to the use of these terms in RFC 2119. In
particular, when they appear in ALL CAPS in this memo:
-"MUST" or "REQUIRED" means that if you do not do this in your I-D,
the IESG will not accept the I-D for any review until the item is
- "SHOULD" or "RECOMMENDED" means that there may be valid reasons
to ignore the item, but an explanation must be given, either in the
text of the document or as part of the submission to the IESG, as to
why the item is being ignored. Otherwise, the IESG may not accept the
I-D for review.
This text both (a) puts draft authors on notice as to what the hard
requirements are in order to avoid late surprises, and (b) puts
reviewers of this memo on notice so that consensus can be reached on
what are or are not real showstoppers for IESG review.
