I don't really like ""/"maybe"/"probably" because we want to tell
developers if they can use bandwidth freely or not. With unclear values,
authors will not know what to do and they might end up doing something
the user isn't expecting.

IMO, user agents and ISP should work together to be able to give correct
values here.

I believe this is done in 6.2. Also at the end of 6.1.

Everything else has been fixed (I believe). New version is:
