I go out on a bit of a limb to say this, Pat, since I don't have detailed
notes from the RBC meetings. But I suspect it was eliminated in the spirit
that it didn't have much to say in the first place. That is, it has all the
force and majesty of a "should" ...
Another perspective is that it's not really a standards matter: if it's not
sufficiently important to rise to the level of a "shall", market forces
will determine whether the successful devices return as much data as they
can as soon as they can---or not.
To put it another way, if you are designing a client application program to
execute at the initiator, what possible difference would this
RECOMMENDATION make to your design?
