As I said in my initial E-Mail I do not agree that this restriction
on a standard should mean that the standard cannot be part of

I believe that a standard is total different to a software program,
which the DFSG was initially written for.

Whats the point of having a "standard" if anyone can modify it?

No, my firewall isn't broken when it drops packets with ECN bits set, my
[evil] company has already clarified RFC793 with the following

-Reserved: 6 bits Reserved for future use. Must be zero.
+Reserved: 6 bits Reserved for future use. Must be zero. Packet is
+illegal and must be dropped if not zero.

There, I haven't even modified the meaning of it, have I? (obviously
this is open to interpretation...)
