No, you are right. These options were discussed, and 2) was something 
everybody seemed to be able to agree upon.

Sorry if I added to the confusion. So I'll rephrase that: when in the 
future we come across things that could *also* go into an implementation 
guide instead of the spec, we may want to actually consider to start a 
document like that; and I'm volunteering to work on that. That would be 
separate from RFC2518bis, and potentially not even an IETF document 
(unless the WG would want it to be that way).

Best regards, Julian
