It makes sense to keep the final sentence in, since it makes it clear when the 424 is returned. However, 
then sentence does need to have a statement about how required it is. Choices are MAY, SHOULD, MUST.

MAY: IMO, too weak
SHOULD: could live with it, but implies there may be reasons a server wouldn't do this. I can't think of any 
such cases
MUST: seems to describe desired behavior, and makes a clear statement. 

Hence, I lean toward using MUST here.
