Re: may to MUST
You're right Bob, the changelog is wrong. However, I agree with Mark's sentiment that there is the chance that some may/MUST manipulation happened without an exhaustive review, so I will re-submit a less-changed version of the document. The changes I pull out will be sent to the list for review before being re-changed. I'll likely pull more than just may/MUST manipulations. In fact I estimate of the 60 odd non-editorial changes, I'll pull 30-40. This means there may be 30-40 new threads to look forward to on the list (sorry). I'll try to keep the process as sane as possible.

I believe that I can dispel some concerns that were brought up at the
ldapbis WG last night about changing a "may" to a "MUST."

If I read this change log properly, the original 2251 document did not say
"may treat," it said "will treat." So perhaps there is not an specification
change concern here.
