After all, it is better to delay such an advertisement after, at least, a Last
Call. In case there were something to change...
So these variants will not be advertised in INN 2.5.2. Maybe for the following

These two status fields will be removed in the -03 draft. Urs convinced me :)
There is no good reason to define them. It can cause problems to readers
that do not understand 'M'. I was only suggesting 'Y' and 'M' for the beauty
of the protocol, covering all possible cases with local/peer rights.
Better stick to what is already implemented for a Proposed Standard.
