[BA] To me, it does not make sense to retain optional features with only one implementation while removing mandatory features with only a single implementation. 

Aside from Section 8.6 (where mandatory to implement stats are identified), the specification rarely calls out optional functionality. 

Can we perhaps start from the assumption that unless called out as optional, features are mandatory to implement? 

If a feature only turns out to have one implementation, can we reclassify it as optional at PR?
