Using RFC 2119 [RFC2119] Keywords (MUST, SHOULD, MAY, ...) makes it 
easy to spot conformance requirements; according to the RFC itself, 
they should be used only to establish interoperation 
[WIKI-RFC-KEYWORDS]. They are usually written with an uppercase 
formatting. It's a good idea to create a specific markup for them too. 
It will be easier to extract conformance requirements and better for 
accessibility (See the Manual of Style).

Editing done.
