An essential standard is the best practice document
maintained by the IETF on use of the words
must/should/may in standards, RFC 2119.  Focuses
strictly on interoperability as the only excuse to use
"must" and emphasizes what must be documented for a
"should", etc.

Short but sweet.  Enhances any technical glossary.
