RFC 2119 language should be used to describe optionality as it applies 
to the protocol being discussed, not the optionality of choosing to 
engage in the protocol in the first place. "Clients MAY choose to use 
this protocol" is not an appropriate use of the term "MAY"; "Subscribers 
MAY include a wse:EndTo element in the Subscribe message" is.
