Kenny,

As I understand Serge, and certainly as I understandd the philosophy
credited to Jon Postel, Serge has it right:

> - if the RFC says "the [sender] MUST/MUST NOT" [blah blah]," we should

When we are sending data, we should be strict.  But we should be lenient
when we are receiving data from a non-conforming client if we have that
leeway.

> not be lenient.

When the RFC does not permit us to be lenient, we should not be lenient.
