Section 6 says:

   In particular, they MUST only be used where it is actually required
   for interoperation or to limit behavior which has potential for
   causing harm (e.g., limiting retransmisssions)  For example, they
   must not be used to try to impose a particular method on
   implementors where the method is not required for interoperability.

Section Abstract says:

       The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL
       NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED",  "MAY", and
       "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
       RFC 2119.

It should say:

       The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL
       NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT 
       RECOMMENDED",  "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to 
       be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.

Section 5 says:

5. MAY   This word, or the adjective "OPTIONAL", mean that an item is
   truly optional.  One vendor may choose to include the item because a
   particular marketplace requires it or because the vendor feels that
   it enhances the product while another vendor may omit the same item.
   An implementation which does not include a particular option MUST be
   prepared to interoperate with another implementation which does
   include the option, though perhaps with reduced functionality. In the
   same vein an implementation which does include a particular option
   MUST be prepared to interoperate with another implementation which
   does not include the option (except, of course, for the feature the
   option provides.)
