The reason I chose the restricted wording is simple: since author names
are used in various RFC databases, HTML RFC index pages and the like,
inserting <U+> into those items seems counterproductive at this point.
Naturally, this concern does not apply to acknowledgments, so personal
preference can be given wider latitude there.
