The second sentence of section 6.2 [1] was intended to do exactly
this, where it says:

  # must not accept or support a declaration containing such a value

Would it be clearer to change:
  accept -> accept as a declaration
  support -> <a href="#support-definition">support</a>
?

Or do you see another way to make it clearer?
