Subject: Re: SHOULD => SHALL in "Security implications"

Dear members,

I hereby suggest we use MUST NOT instead of SHALL NOT.

SHALL and SHOULD have an unnecessary small Levenshtein distance ;-)

It also challenges some non-native readers more than required.

With MUST all is so much clearer, isn't it :-?

All the best,
