My concern is that, if we try to create differentiation, using,

careful readers won't be helped and the less-careful ones won't
notice and appreciate the difference.

Bottom line: Folks prefer to have "NOTE" be orthogonal to the question of normativeness. It's role is simply for emphasis, no matter whether for mere commentary or for formal specification.

I'm fine with that, but thought it worth asking.
