So I can agree with that. 

No guessing... at most I'd only want to know what the relevant authoritative
spec(s) (preferably a standards) allowed me to know.

In terms of knowing nothing... does that means not knowing RFC2396? Not
knowing the particular scheme in question?

What if I do know 2396(bis) and the scheme in question?
