If this were in the IETF, you'd get pushback because in the basic/implicit
client specs, there are loads and loads of places where it says MUST or
REQUIRED but you're not doing normative-2119-stuff, you're instructing
client authors what they can reasonably expect from the server; the
MUST/REQUIRED applies to OP behavior not client behaivor.

The problem, if it's a problem, could be fixed by making a whole bunch of
MUSTs into musts.  I’m not sure it’s really a problem, but as a reviewer of
way too many IETF drafts, it did feel a little jarring.   -T
