I'm not sure this should be required for REC documents, which should
have already fulfilled requirements made in either process.

Also I would like to phase out this requirement somehow. It's going
to be not-particularly-useful boilerplate 5 years from now. So I'm
only OK with this if we have a phase-out plan.
