I'm not sure why implementers who are going to miss a specific section 
in RFC2616 aren't going to miss other important sections in RFC2616, 
RFC2518 or BIND as well -- so I don't buy that as reason to repeat 
something that another spec (normatively referenced) already says.

Have you actually *seen* implementers make that mistake? In which case a 
request for clarification should be added to the RFC2616 errata list.
