I don't think you can mix weasel words, like "try", with the strict 
conformance language, like "must".  If you use "must", you need to 
provide a testable conformance condition. I think the best one can get 
away with is:  SHOULD minimise the variation in column length.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
