Like SHOULD NOT today with a strong tendency towards MUST NOT.
ENCOURAGED / OUGHT could be clear, less than SHOULD.
USEFOR once tried an OUGHTificaction, the effect was hilarious.
I also think we'll need to find language that conveys a sense
of timeframe. maybe IMMEDIATELY/ASAP/WHEN PRACTICABLE/BY
So far I thought that "by [date]" isn't allowed. The others
are clear, but why as an upper-case keyword ? The 2119-kewords
have sometimes strange effects, in my last "SHOULD NOT"-debate
others interpreted "SHOULD NOT" as "allowed" <shudder /> Bye
