draft-ietf-httpbis-p5-range-21, "3.2 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable"


"When this status code is returned for a byte-range request, the 
response SHOULD include a Content-Range header field specifying the 
current length of the representation (see Section 5.2). This response 
MUST NOT use the multipart/byteranges content-type. For example,"

What is this "MUST NOT" about? Are there clients that will ignore the 
status code and assume success if they see the expected content-type?

Best regards, Julian
