Subject: Web IDL spec nitpick: SHOULD and SHOULD NOT?

Hi -- I just started reading the working draft of the Web IDL spec at
(http://www.w3.org/TR/WebIDL/); looks interesting and useful so far.
Thanks for putting it together!

I have one tiny nitpicky comment about something that caught my eye in
passing.  The spec says:

> The keywords “must”, “must not”, “required”, “shall”, “shall not”,
> “recommended”, “may” and “optional” in this document are to be
> interpreted as described in Key words for use in RFCs to Indicate
> Requirement Levels [RFC2119].

I'm thinking that "SHOULD" and "SHOULD NOT" should be added to that
list (right after "SHALL" and "SHALL NOT").

But you may well already know about that and be planning to change it,
in which case never mind.
