Many specs have UI requirements of various sorts.  E.g., CSS 2.1 says
that "If the source document comes with alternate style sheet sets
(such as with the 'alternate' keyword in HTML 4 [HTML4]), the UA must
allow the user to select which style sheet set the UA should apply."
I guess you could say that this should be a "should" requirement, not
"must", but I think it's perfectly fair for it to be stated in the
spec.
