DMNFTF — RFC-2119 language

  • Key: DMNFTF-61
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19212
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Andrew Watson)
  • Summary:

    Congratulations on using RFC-2119 language pretty consistently ("must", "should" etc). However, if the spec ever gets sent to ISO, it would have to switch to ISO language. The main difference is that ISO insists on "shall" instead of "must". Fortunately, "shall" is also in RFC-2119, so by switching all instances of "must" to "shall", you can comply with both. See:

    Replace all occurrences of "MUST" with "SHALL", many occurrences of "should" with "SHOULD".
