s/2.4/2.3/  Yes, forget it, it's the responsibility of
the client.  In command line ftp sessions I often had
the "default ASCII" problem, but a proper client won't
be so stupid. ;-)

How about a warning in section 2.1 or 3, that a good 
e-mail address sent to anonymous ftp servers could be 
abused to harvest addresses ?  It's one of the things
I've never tested with my browsers.
