Agreed.  I've created http://hg.openid.net/connect/issue/716/client-server-2119-blurriness to track this issue.

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
