Beyond some point, you can't force people to be reasonable.

Agree entirely. And this is why I think the EAI specs are too subtle on this point.

I do have an opinion about what that point is, and what the documents ought to say. But my real issue is that it's possible to review source code against every MUST and SHOULD in 653x and miss that there's something to consider.
