There is also the ISO directive for how to express normative language. 
Specifically: ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2: Rules for the structure and 
drafting of International Standards. Not quite the same as the IETF RFC 
definitions. However, the ISO definitions are used in all ISO standards, OGC 
standards and I believe ITU standards.

Cheers
