Where, specifically, in the text of RFC2396 is the definition that says
that?   I 've looked for it, and I don't believe it exists.  I think that may
be one of the things that people believe to be true because it was often said
-- but not in any definitive context.  (I've also been discussing this issue
in a dialogue with John Cowan.)
