> Peter, Rebecca, fantasai, others, any thoughts on how to best handle SHOULD/MAY requirements in specs? For ref, the thread starts here:

One of the reasons why we test should/may requirements is to encourage
implementations to do the right thing. In a lot of cases the leeway is
due to complexity or performance or lack of existing implementations.
So the spec can't require a particular behavior, but the test suite,
by including tests for the correct behavior, can encourage implementations
to move in that direction.
