As I've mentioned before, allowing boundaries to be substrings of

John, the only implementation that I know about that can't handle
boundaries containing substrings of other boundaries is the one from
Frontier.  What others can't handle this?

The bnf in 1341 doesn't prohibit a boundary token from being a superset of
a second boundary contained by the first one.  It requires it to be
different, but a superset satisfies that requirement.
