Yeah, you don't want to discourage implementation.  I think
the goal is to find some balance between not putting off
implementers on the one hand, and having to deal with an
embarrassing incident on the other.  I'd be more comfortable
with language that's a bit stronger but it's not a huge
issue, certainly not one that's an impediment to moving the
document forward (particularly given that it's intended for
publication as an experimental standard).  In general I
thought the draft was clearly written and straightforward,
and ready for publication modulo this one minor issue.
