Please read again. By recommending this language in a normative section, 
you do require it. Per RFC2119 a recommendation is not an optional 
'should'. This thread also suggests at least one WG member does wish to 
standardize on GL SL ES for this feature i.e. require it in some form.
We would like the issue and objection to be recorded for future discussions.
