Anyone who is on the Internet has access to the INN source since it is freely
available. When I wrote the draft, I was trying to stay consistent with all the
server implementations I have worked with, not just INN. Not all servers do
things the same way, so in some cases, I had to choose one. In those cases, I
chose the "reference implementation" behavior first and INN second.
