And this is a very reasonable approach. I support Jon’s take on this.
Thus, saying (e.g.) that the range MUST be between 1K and 16K is a bad idea; we
even know now that 256K has in some cases an efficiency advantage. You can say,
MUST support 1K to 16K, SHOULD support up to 256K and MAY support larger sizes.
There can also be a couple of paragraphs to explain that there are good reasons
neither to be very small nor very large.
