"3.2 Requirement A: Use a consistent style for conformance
requirements and explain how to distinguish them." mentions that
RFC2119 terms are uppercase, but it should be noted that nothing in
RFC2119 (other than consistent usage as such) requires them to be used
in uppercase, despite specifications frequently explicitly mentioning
that they use lowercase variants instead.
