Yeah, it seems to me that this kind of thing (any "should" statement) is
a goal/CSF, not a requirement.  If you can't tell whether you've met a
requirement, what good is it?  Also, I think we should only accept
requirements we reasonably expect we can meet.

I guess there's something powering this discussion, but I don't know
what.   Paul, what is it you want RIF-WG to do, in the days to come,
that you're getting at with this requirement?
