How can you say that? For that matter, why would less specific

I was commenting on adding text to cover all the angles. That can
lead to "over-specification". Instead of clarifying the text, it can
become more convoluted. It might also impose unneeded requirements.
For example, Tony Finch explained how an implementation provides for
local policy checks by the administrator. The result was a 550 code
returned when EHLO is missing. You described how an implementation
can recover from the error condition if a 503 code is returned
there. Both of you have valid arguments about why the implementation
is done in such a way.
