There will be a note in the RFC that the document is "not a candidate 
for any level of Internet Standard".

RFC 5782, which came from the ASRG, lists RFC 2119 keywords.  An

The ASRG charter mentions:

   "codification of best current practises in spam management"

The boilerplate change was made to address some of the points you raised.
