It's inappropriate to say that the client SHALL request a password
from the user if none is supplied and the server demands one (and
likewise for accounts).  The client must be free to fail under such
circumstances, as it may be a robot or otherwise not have a user
available.  Likewise with SHALL notify the user, etc.  These should be
changed to MAYs or SHOULDs.

Editorial notes:  Lots of people don't know what "ibidem" means, or even
its standard abbreviation "ibid".  I suggest changing the first instance
to "in RFC 959", the second instance to "below", and the third instance
to "in the <cwd>".

Note error "internalization" for "internationalization", "internalized"
for "internationalized", etc.

Note persistent typo "exmaple.com" for "example.com".
