This is bizarre. You are the second person who is
confused about what I am saying.

I'm not confused. Read my words again, up above. I was
merely restating the claim made by the first poster in 
order to show him where his confusion may have arisen.

The chronology that I believe is as follows:

RFC 2050 - yes
Old wording - yes (poor phrasing, but no intentions
              to *CHANGE* RFC 2050.)
New wording - yes (fixed the wording to make it clear
              that the policy is and always has been
              the same as RFC 2050)

If anything, I suppose this demonstrates that we have
to be careful how we state things.
