Procedural comment: we have the RFC2518 issues list to capture issues 
and their resolutions. If the issues list records a *different* 
consensus than then one you were basing your edits on RFC2518bis on, 
this is a problem. So it's really essential that if consensus indeed 
*changes* at some point of time, this is explicitly 
announced/discussed/reviewed here, and  the issues list indeed gets 
updated accordingly.

That being said, I really don't care a lot about what way we go. 
However, disallowing a behaviour that current servers currently *do* 
allow seems to a bit dangerous. We will at least need to convince 
ourselves that making that change doesn't break any existing clients.

Best regards, Julian
