DR305 states: 

"The XML Protocol SHOULD provide functionality to enable the creation of
complex applications. As the consequences of a failure increase, the need to
ensure message integrity and privacy, the need to be aware of delivery
semantics, and the need to support more complex exchange patterns for
long-lived sessions and for transactional semantics also increase. The XML
protocol SHOULD provide facilities (possibly optional standardised header
and/or trailer elements) to encourage a common approach for providing
facilities such as: authentication, encryption, reliable delivery, sessions
and transactions. "

We suggest a slight reqording. We prefer a MUST rather than a SHOULD.
