There's nothing the standard can do about that. Like I said, we've
talked about that enough in my opinion.

But people are already implementing it, and if they do something else
that's their problem. The flaw I'm thinking of was over the RTS/CTS

you're supposed to make at least two implementations when proposing a
standard field.
