Well, I'd like more help understanding what they expect. I
have tried to figure out how to acknowledge these expectations,
and I couldn't find a natural place to put it in the documents,
nor could I figure out what to say.

If you'd like to suggest specific text for the spec, I'm happy
to consider it.

Otherwise, please help me understand by telling me a story
or something.
